Full Description

TB 36″ E W8M

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “This heavily dotted and sanded plicata from Cayeux is a rival of the series now so popular from the Sasses. It has a ground color of silvery white, closely netted with rosy heliotrope. A very large blossom.”

From Hoffman’s Iris Garden catalog for 1956: “Standards are lovely soft rosy heliotrope on translucent silvery white ground. The falls are banded and veined at margin with the same degree of color which gradually shades toward the center.”
