From AIS Bulletin #285 April 1992 Introducing CANNINGTON BLUEBIRD (C. Bartlett '92) TB 35" M. Our first introduction of this talented hybridizer is truly beautiful. We first saw it in bloom in its home garden with four flowers open on well-spaced branches. S. are bluebird blue with white at the midrib; F. are bluebird blue with a white center and light violet plicata markings on the hafts and edges. The white beards set off this exceptional iris.
