MOD MODE (Gibson, '70) M. 38" Each $20.00. A whole series of stitched, dotted and etched seedlings has come along from crosses using April Melody as one parent. Here is our favorite thus far. It is a very delicate light shade of pink, almost white, with a fine pattern of deeper pinkish etching. Ideal form, opulent bloom and tall, well branched stalks contribute to its alluring charm. No. 27-50. [Cooley's Iris, 1970]
