From AIS Bulletin #317 April 2000 Introducing LITTLE SPRINGS BLUE Sdlg 31-97 14" (36 cm), (((22-91: (Oriental Blush x unknown) X Ballet Slippers))) X ((72-91: (Star Oancer x unknown)). SDB, Mid to late. In Missouri during pioneer days, almost every farm had a spring where drinking water could be gotten. Missouri also has many big springs that produce thousands of gallons of water each day. Big Springs at Van Buren probably is the largest and as you look into it, you see nothing but deep blue. This being a dwarf iris, I couldn't call it 'Big Spring Blue' so had to revert to the little springs all over Missouri. It is one of the deepest blue selfs that I have seen and has a large bushy blue beard to go with it. It can produce four buds to the stalk and isthe last SDB to bloom. $15.00. Cape Iris.
