Full Description

TB 37″ La B2M

From Iris Test Gardens catalog for 1954: “Sass Brothers’ modest description of this iris, ‘A purple and white of Moonlit Sea coloring without the yellow. 36 inch stems.’ Our comment: ‘Here is a knockout, different from anything we have seen, will attract attention anywhere.’ A fine thing.”

From Edenwald Gardens catalog for 1958: “Chalk-white undercolor so heavily striated with purple that little of the white shows through, except throughout the center in stunning contrast.”
