From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing NIPPUR (Pray). AB-C.G. White type. 28-32". Complex parentage. Noted for its vigorous growth, good branching, and resistance to rust and leaf spot. It is a very pretty shade of maroon dots, veins and flushed on parchment. Should prove a valuable breeder to increase vigor. $20.00. Sierra Vista Iris Garden.
