From Schreiners catalog, 1963: NEWPORT (Schreiner 1963) E. 38". $20.00. This is the bluest of blue plicatas - an iris whose snowy ground is edged a delightful cerulean blue. Not as fancy an iris as Rococo but bluer. Newport won its spurs the year the American Iris Society met in Oregon (1960), having been given a Highly Commended award by the AIS judges. A large flower with tall, well-branched stems. It is very refreshing in the clump and in consequence is a fine garden iris. Newport is derived from (Caroline Jane x Belle Meade) x Dotted Swiss. Newport is a lot prettier than its picture and we think you will like it. Rl77-A.
