From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1952: CONTRAST. (Bruce-Debaillon,' 43). This excellent breeder is the parent of most of the bitones and bicolors originating today as well as some of the best reds. Though the flowers reach only four inches in width, the interesting combinationof red-violet sepals and pale orchid petals is most arresting. 24" to 30". $2.00.
