From AIS Bulletin #193 April 1969 Introducing SOUTHERN Spy Sdlg. 65-26B-12. E & Re. Closest to perfection of my remontants thus far. Standards orange-brown touched green at the midreibs, and so full and swirled that the style-arms are completely hidden. The falls flare almost horizontally and flare upwards at the end and are somewhat ruffled. The fall color is maroon-red with a central spot of pale orchid in which are some white markings, the effect being of a spot of white in the dark falls. The sides of the hafts are completely solid. Well-branched, 34". Blooms mid-May and early September. (Northern Spy X Double Majesty). $35. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
