From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1953: FOR SURE (Linse 1953) Very, very late. 38". As distinct and novel as any iris ever introduced! This seedling of Lady Mohr ex Painted Desert- perhaps the first child of the Lady to be introduced, is a true hybrid in every respect: manner of growth, foliage and flower. The medium to large flowers-many of them double, are carried on tall stems with from one to three branches widely spaced. Flowers are decidedly ruffled and frilly, and the color is cream or creamy tan with bright margining of Ecru or Pinard yellow in a fine line around the petals. The falls are washed with violet about the beard, in the manner of a diffused signal patch. A pleasing and very pretty iris! It is later than either Extravaganza or Golden Symphony and has been seen by but few iris enthusiasts. Rapid of increase with low clean foliage and will set some seeds. Each $25.00.
