From AIS Bulletin #229, Spring 1978 Introducing DON'T NEGLECTA (Muhlestein). E-L, 36". (Spanish Eyes X Dusky Dancer). A charming neglecta with blue standards and very dark velvety purple falls. Sends up secondary stalks to lengthen its bloom season. I have used it frequently for that true black and white amoena since its hafts are perfectly clean and the flaring falls are round and full. No pollen, strictly pod fertile. EC, HC '77. #440 A. $25.00. Tell's Iris Garden.
