From Moonshine Gardens catalog, 1989: LOW HO SILVER (IB) 19" E-L. E200-100: HOWDY DO X BABY BLESSED. Silvery white, touched tannish yellow at hafts; silvery white beards tipped yellow. They bloomed together for such an incredibly long time last year and I was struck by the fact that this and HIGH HO SILVER share much in common--incredible vigor, incredible reblooming ability and color--though this is usually just a bit whiter. It's already reblooming all over this country, even in places like Nebrask, and in England! Was first of just three irises to rebloom in 1988 for Ray Wilson (the editor of the British Remontant Journal). I doubt there is or ever has been an iris more vigorous or with a stronger will to put up rebloom stalks!!! That's quite a mouthful I know' Here its increases bloom whenever they get big enough and there are always some getting big enough while at the same time sprouting loads more little fans to repeat the process--over and over and over again! Nice flaring flowers on nice stalks and excellent proportions all the way. Fragrant too! Set pods last year to SMELL THE ROSES, its little half-brother that possesses the same kind of strength and reblooming ability! Hail BABY BLESSED!!! their father, which will go down in iris history for adding a whole new dimension to the word "rebloomer"!! What will the next dimension be??!!! $20.00
