PROVOST (Muhlestein 1945) (Fort Knox x Dr. Loomis' seedling "Type Dore" which is a seedling of Sea Shell). Here is a new color-pattern in the lavender class. Standards and falls same even lavender-orchid. There seems to be a slight amount of buff somewhere in the color, but difficult to isolate. The falls are edged with buff. Flowers are large and waved in form. Heavy substance. Sweet fragrance. Excellent branching. Height 41 inches. Because of the Sea Shell blood back of it this one will undoubtedly prove valuable as a breeder. Stock limited. One to a customer only. Price $50.00 _each.[Tell Muhlestein Iris List, 1945. Provo, Utah]
