From AIS Bulletin #297 April 1995 Introducing ABSALOM (Innerst 95). Sdlg 3693-1, Japanese, 6 falls, 38", 2 branches, 7 buds. Absalom was King David's favorite son, and this splendid mid-blue iris with white mottling, blue style arms, and yellow signals is certain to become a favorite Japanese iris by all who grow it. Fertile and very vigorous. 2462-3 ((Stranger in Paradise x Yusho) X Anytus)) X 3244-1 ((Frostbound x Fringed Cloud) X Hegira)). Sterling Innerst's garden will be on tour this year during the Society for Japanese Irises convention in Towson, Maryland. We expect ABSALOM to be sold out after it is seen on tour, so order early to avoid disappointment. And be sure to come to the SJI convention! $35.00. The Iris Pond.
