From Cooley's 1934 Iris Gardens catalog: ANAKIM. [Dr. R. E. Kleinsorge, 1934] Gigantic lavender, so outstanding in its color class as to defy all predecessors. Despite its colossal size, the flowers are graceful in effect, well carried on stems over four feet tall. The extremely broad falls are a noticeable feature in this flower of architectural perfection. Each $10.00
