From AIS Bulletin #232 Winter 1979 Introducing WINDSTOPPER-Seedling 76-2. AR, 24", Med. S. buff to light brown; F. same. Dark brown beard. The name was given to this strong-growing iris because it can withstand the hard winds and hot sun, which we have so often here in the windy city. It is also a very good pod parent, producing seed from pollen of pure arils. Plenty of pollen and fertile. A strong grower and increaser. (Jallah Effendi x Imaret) X (Summer Set x Persian Brass). $25.00. Mount Clare iris Gardens.
