Hybridizer's comment: 'Doctor Long John' is one in a series of irises with very long and horizontal falls; they look like stars, seen from the top, and I intend to keep exploring into this direction for new colours and patterns. Thanks to Bette Midler for the name!
Commentaire de l'Hybrideur: 'Doctor Long John' fait partie de mes iris à longs sépales étroits et horizontaux; ils ressemblent à des étoiles, vus d'en haut et j' essaie de trouver d'autres couleurs et dessins dans cette forme. Merci à Bette Midler pour le nom!
