From AIS Bulletin #349 April 2008 Introducing CHINA IN SPRINGTIME (Niswonger'08), SPEC-X, Sdlg. Sib. 3-06: Sib.6-99. (Out In Missouri x I typhifolia) X Unknown. 42" (107 cm), E. The advantage of I typhifolia hybrids is their early bloom compared to most Siberian irises. This one is probably the tallest of most of my hybrids with a good strong stalk. It's an unusual color too, being a light blue bitone with a slight edge of white around the falls. The standards are light blue, the style arms blue and the falls a darker blue. It's fertile both ways, providing an opportunity for further advancement of this line of breeding. $30.00. Dave Niswonger (Cape Iris).
