From AIS Bulletin #309 April 1998 Introducing TATTLETALE (McAllister, 1998) Seedling 86-7-1. On opening, the soft violet standards and the greyed-violet falls have an intense smoky overlay. In full sun, it gradually fades to tattletale grey - which just makes its large, near-black, tongue-shaped signal all the more noticeable. A fully fertile 1/2-bred (OGB) from Edith Seligmann X (Martha Mia x Moon Dust). $35.00. McAllister's Iris Gardens.
