From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog,1959: MISS MARTHA (H. M. McLeod.) Very early, intermediate season. 21 inches. (Anndelia x True Delight) x (Korolkowi Violacea.) This lovely little regelia hybrid was named for the daughter of its hybridizer. A most interesting combination of colors. Standards are light raspberry veined deeper raspberry-red. Falls creamy-white changing to light raspberry at tip, and veined deep raspberry-red. The heavy veining forms a signal patch at tip of the dark bronze beard. This could be a most interesting parent for many colors including fine plicatas. Substance only fair. $10.00
