From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: EARLY MORN. (Reg. 1950). This iris attracted more attention than any other in the garden this year. The flat 7-inch flowers have a deep cream base splashed with old rose. A few hours after opening, the center of the sepal fades to a near cream, giving a somewhat plicata effect; the petals have an old rose line down the center. Style arms are marsh rose centered and edged bright gold. The 36-inch stalk has lateral branching, affording the simultaneous bloom of three blooms to a stalk. Early to mid-season. $10.00.
