From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing MISS JUPITER. Never before have we offered Space-Age iris, but this one is truly "something else." A giant in every way, the huge blooms sport flounces on the end of long "spears," held gracefully. The yellow color has some tan at the haft, to which the purist may object, but he will object anyway! The stalks are gigantic, strong, beautifully branched, with 3 buds in each placement; and the flowers all carry the flounces unless the weather turns mercilessly hot. And, yes, it IS fertile-very. (Sdlg. 68-118B-FF). $40.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
