Full Description

TB 36″ ML

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1979: “These two sister seedlings are almost indistinguishable from each other. This one has a tint more blue in the very dark violet plicata borders and the falls are slightly more oblong in shape than those of Graphic Arts which also has a half inch line extending up the center tip of the fall petals into the clean white ground. So why put both of them on the market? There is one BIG difference: Graphic Arts blooms quite early and Mirror Image begins to bloom just as its sister opens its last flowers. So if you like this iris you will have twice as long to enjoy it. There was also the predictable opinion division: about half the viewers like one and half the other when it bloomed last year. We like to make everybody happy!”
