■(JI) 'Stippled Ripples'

1959, Marx

'Stippled Ripples' ( Walter Marx, R. 1959) JI, 40" (102 cm), Late. White, with red border. 'Akafukurin' x 'Kuruma-Dome'. Delayed registration. Marx 1955.

See below:


From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: STIPPLED RIPPLES $7.50 A dainty frilly affair with lots of personality. Though not large the saucy flare and extremely frilled edge distinguish the flower from all others. Color, much like its parent, Kuruma-dome, is white with the narrowest red border. We are very fond of this enchanting iris and believe it will win great popularity. Blooms rather late in the season on 3 to 3½ foot stems.
From Tempo Two AU catalog, 1974: STIPPLED RIPPLES (Marx '59 USA) Double. E-M. Heavily substanced pure white ruffled blooms with 1/8" band of magenta around each petal. Small gold signals-white style arms. 36".Limited stock. $3.50.
