TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-B7D. ‘Bluebonnet‘ x Unknown.
From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: WINNESHIEK (Egelberg 1931) M. 40 in. An unusually beautiful dark iris that appeals strongly to everyone. There is no other similar enough to become confused with its deep tone of blue purple, set off by a narrow border of Bishop’s purple. Of extra large size, heavy substance and rich velvety texture. Standards and falls are broad, full and waved. The stalk is well branched and the plant very hardy and free flowering. Always a best seller. 50c.
