From Fleur De Lis Gardens, Canby, Oregon, Catalog, 1966. - BRIGANTINE (Tompkins '66l E. VL. 48 in. (Sib. to Fleet Admiral). A true Giant among Iris, this is as different from its sisters as night is from day, in both form and color. It has excellent form and exceedingly broad, heavily substanced petals. A real Color Blast, this is a blended self of vivid Amethyst violet, Petunia blue and Mulberry rose, a color further accented by a smooth chocolate red haft and a blazing blue beard. The stalks are very tall, wind resistant and are beautifully branched. Its so big and loud that it should be classed as a Louisville slugger. No. 61-135D. Net 20.00. .
