From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2012: NOW PLAYING (T.Johnson ‘12) TB Early-Mid 38” (97cm). On first glance, Now Playing would seem to be a strongly colored reverse blue amoena. Look again. There is a touch of yellow on the hafts that repeats on the fall reverse creating the look of a reverse blue and lemon bicolor. Yellow styles add to its intrigue. Growth is strong and clean as would be expected from its grandparent Mythology. Show stalks have 9-11 buds. Should be a nice parent for reverse blue and yellow. Sdlg. TA51A: (Quite the Reverse x Mythology) X Crystal Gazer. $50.00.

  • An unheralded introduction, this iris boasts wonderful branching, strong stems, and a smallish, unusually pretty flower in the reverse amoeba family. -- WikiGuest - 24 Jan 2018
