PACIFIC SHORES (Babson '79) has standards in blue-white and falls, medium blue-purple edged pale blue with much blue-white veining. A late bloomer, it offers good branching and bud count. Not too exciting! [F. G. Stephenson, (VA), “1980 Iris Season Reviewed in Virginia”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 239 (October 1980): 43.]
