Full Description

TB 37″ M B1L

From Mission Gardens catalog for 1949: “A midseason blooming variety that is most refreshing and lovely. A large, very ruffled light blue iris with just a suspicion of pink delicately diffused on the center of the standards and falls. Broad, full standards, firmly held and almost meeting over the beard. The falls are flaring and wide, with no haft markings. Orange beard shading off to white at the tip. Vigorous and thoroughly hardy, with nine to eleven heavy substanced flowers on each well branched stalk. 37″. This is a ‘must have’ for every real iris fancier.”

From Lyon’s Irisland catalog for 1949: “Ruffled wisteria blue with just a suspicion of pink delicately suffused on the center of the petals of beautifully formed flowers. Hardy. Mid-season. 38″. ”
