From Mid-America Garden catalog, 2011: RASPUTIN (T.Johnson ‘11) TB Midseason 34” (86cm). Rasputin was most assuredly as colorful a character as the iris but definitely lacked the good-looks. Heavily ruffled, luscious apricot peach standards havea lovely rosy blush up midribs. Neatly ruffled, wide falls are rich wine claret banded mid rosy mauve. Light peach veins cluster around bright tangerine beards. Large flowers are presented on strong, well-branched stalks. Excellent increase produces instant clumps. Rasputin should give excellent bicolor seedlings with wonderfully colored and patterned falls. Sdlg. TA18E: Catwalk Queen sib. $55.00.
