Full Description

TB 54″ M B9L

From Edenwald Gardens catalog for 1946: “Gigantic lavender-blue on tallest stems. One of the largest iris. Vigorous in growth, profuse in bloom, sensational in size. Beautiful in color. Fragrant.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1932: “This light blue bi-color is said by the originator to measure 11″ across. It should bloom for the first time in my garden this year. If it proves to be as large as represented, it is no doubt the largest of all irises to date”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1940: “The tallest and one of the largest and finest light blue toned Irises I have ever grown. Huge flowers, with full flaring falls measuring from 8 to 10 inches across. Sold a few years ago at $35.00 for a single plant. It is entirely unlike any other blue-toned Iris and now that it can be had for such a modest price it should be in every garden.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “Giant pale blue, a better Loetitia Michaud. From Millet, the originator of the famous and lovely Loetitia, and considered as his finest iris. Enamel-like luster, on very tall stems, and with flaring falls.”
