From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: CRITERION. (G. Douglas, 1951). M. L. Mr. Douglas has been very successful in producing fine amoenas and this one lives up to the high standard he has set in selecting seedlings for introduction. The well domed standards are white, faintly veined with very pale blue; the semi-flaring falls are clear blue-violet with a distinct edging of white in sharp contrast to the center of the falls. A prolific bloomer, it is the best amoena that Mr.Douglas has developed from the standpoint of breeding, for it sets seeds both ways. The firm substanced flowers are carried on strong,especially well branched stalks. H. M., A. I. S., 1952. 38 inches. $7.50
