ALWAYS (C. G . White). This iris gives an impression of a sturdiness that might endure always. The huge flowers are as if carved from old ivory, so thick and firm is their substance, yet delicately decorated with veins and fine spatterings of bronzed red-purple. The heavy orange beard accents and adds to the yellow glow which suffuses the center of the flower. The widely branched stems are tall and strong . There is nothing temperamental or flimsy about this giant plicata. $10.00. (Milliken, 1937).
