From AIS Bulletin #321 April 2001 Introducing WHITEWATER RIVER (Niswonger '01) Sdlg Sp 4-99: Missouri Rainbows X I. notha. Spuria, 40" (101.6 cm). This is the darkest blue from this cross. It has a small yellow signal. It will not set seed very easily. Whitewater River is where my forefathers settled in Missouri two hundred years ago. Can you imagine crossing the Mississippi River on ice with all those wagons, horses, cattle and other stock with enough provisions to feed them all that winter? This happened on Jan. 1st, 1800. They harvested their crops in Sept in North Carolina. $30.00. Cape Iris.
