Full Description

TB 44″ M Y6L

From Lyon’s Irisland catalog for 1955: “This flower has a variation of pattern that gives it distinction. The standards, broad and ruffled, are of Colonial buff. The falls are iridescent white with a clear fluted border of the same buff which widens at the hafts around the orange beard. The styles are a slightly deeper buff. Olive-yellow buds with a lime-green midrib, showing very ruffled form, are a striking contrast.”
