Full Description

TB 40″ M W2D

From Carl Salbach’s catalog for 1934: “This new giant plicata, though related to San Francisco and of comparable size and habit, is absolutely distinct from anything previously introduced. Its large flowers have a white ground, the standards heavily edged red purple, the falls reticulated with the same color. The prominent orange beard, unusual in plicatas, lights up the flowers in a most attractive way.”

From Cooley’s Iris Gardens catalog for 1936: “A giant plicata of San Francisco type, but with reddish brown dots and reticulations instead of the usual blue or lavender. The ground color is creamy white. A very tall variety, the large flowers being produced on well branched stems. It is probably even more dependable in unfavorable climates than are many of the other California productions.”

From National Iris Gardens 1941: “This is the only white plicata which has profusely margined magenta violet S. and less profusely margined violet brown F. In appearance it is most unusual.”
