Full Description

TB 37″ MLa B7M

From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “A bluish violet with a beautiful pinkish sheen and brown haft. A flower of unusual beauty and finish. 36 in.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1941: “A peculiar and subtle shade of rosy lavender, the same in standards and falls, with a pronounced copper area throughout the center. Large and of ideal shape, a fine grower.”

From DeForest’s Irisnoll catalog for 1942: “Lovely lavender shaded brown at the haft. Different.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “As distinct and original an iris as can be imagined, one of our favorites. A pearly mauve to rosy-lavender, a pure self with unusual, pronounced area of warm coppery brown throughout the center and on the haft.”
