From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing LITTLE PAPOOSE-SIB #3189. Rare Jewel X Kismet. 20" M 1.7" blooms 3 wide bran. 6 buds. Jaunty deep red grape intermediate-all in harmonious proportion. White signals. Fine substance and takes rain well. An excellent rock garden subject for blooms and oriental effect of foliage. I am happily dreaming of the dwarf plants from the cross of Little Papoose X Precious Doll having their maiden bloom. $75.00. Illini Iris.
