From AIS Bulletin #242 July 1981 Introducing MARTHA OF BETHANY (B. Miller). TB, 36", E & RE (sometimes in late October). Medium-sized, pleasingly ruffled fuschia purple blossom, with graceful Hogarthcurved branching and multiple buds-2 to 3 per socket, up to 14. Four branches and terminal. Wonderful fragrance, identical to white locust. Very crisp, sturdy texture. Good increase. Vigorous plant. Fertile both ways. We consider this our top introduction to date and highly recommend it if you want an iris that you will love for a lifetime. Patience X Autumn Velvet. $30.00. Bernice Miller.
