From Mid-America Garden catalog, 1987: MARY'S LAMB - SOB, 10 " (25cm), Midseason. Mary had a little lamb, its fleece was white as snow. This iris too is white as snow with a blush of yellow at the haft and a soft, pale violet beard. This was the stand out performer for overall quality this year. Plants are vigorous and very floriferous. Elegantly formed flowers bloom mostly on the same plane so there is a carpet of white spread before ones eyes with an intricate weaving of violet beards. This years best! Sdlg. 831618: (Puppet X Meadow Moss) X Sapphire Jewel)) X (Hamblen M73-12A X Sapphire Jewel). SEE PHOTO. $10.00.
