From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing GERTRUDE WElL: 40", M-VL. (Carolina Royal X Prince Indigo). A deep blue-violet 9" sister to Carolina Fragrance that commands attention of all visitors. Named for my good friend and the real inspirer by her confidence in this business, the late Miss Gertrude Weil of Goldsboro, N.C. This iris is as she was-a gentle giant. Branched 4 ways; 2 buds per socket. Its falls are absolutely horizontal-the favorite color and form of the famed irisarian for which it was named. Beards gold, tipped violet. Foliage clean and proportionate. Also, delightfully fragrant. Sdlg. 69-92. Limit one per customer. Net $35.00. Powell's Gardens.
