From AIS Bulletin #245 July 1982 Introducing ROKKI-#CC72-10. A white double from Creole Can-Can crosses. A very exciting color break. The blossoms open with a creamy chartreuse coloring about the shade of one of its grandparents, Queen 0' Queens. As it unfolds its many petaloids, it changes to almost pure white with a cream-chartreuse flush at the base of petals and petaloids. Very seldom are any two blossoms on the same stalk identical. Frequently, one stalk is a bouquet in itself when three blossoms are open at one time. Vigorous grower. If you like doubles, you must grow this one. $25.00. Granger's Iris Garden.
