From AIS Bulletin #165, April 1962. Introducing LOVILIA: 45". Chivalry X (Charmed sib x Helen McGregor sdlg). Voted H.C. in 1961, this large, heavily ruffled, pale blue comes very close to perfection. It is perhaps the finest iris I have produced, one I am proud to name for my wife. Branching is a bit high but flowers do not bunch, and on every other point there is no fault. It will take anything but a hailstorm and is producing superior seedlings. Pictured at left. $20.00. Crandall's Iris Garden.
LOVILLA (Crandall '63) is another pale blue with fine form and branching. Each petal seems to have a curl at its tip, giving it a distinctive air. The already mentioned BROADMEADOW fits into this rather limited class. Joseph Ghio, “The 1965 Iris Season in Review,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 81.
