From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing BLITHE BLUE-Gingerbread Man x Meadow Moss. Smaller growing and daintier than many standard dwarf irises. Garden effect is deep blue, though on close inspection the flowers are deep blue, blended mauve. The plant is nicely proportioned all the way. Add a welcome new color to your early garden. $5.00.
