From Walter Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: BLUE COAT. $10.00 A clear medium blue double very near Delft Blue, out of Irojiman x Shimeino-aki. Every year we search through our fields of seedlings for bluer iris and consider this selection the finest in its color class. Except for some scattered white penciling the color resembles Irojiman our very finest blue single. Crisp appearance and perfect tailoring emphasize the quality stamped all over this iris. Medium 7-in ch flowers open rather late on 3-foot stems.
