From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: SPOONED FANTOM (Austin '60) EML-36". Fascinating early stage in evolution of Spooned Iris. As may be seen in my color photograph spoons at ends of long horns usually stand erect in a very striking manner. Different flowers may vary from spooned to horned, but all are delightful. I set 14 pods on it in 1959. Pollen scarce, yet quite fertile. Sweetly fragrant. Excellent branching. (JS-M-1768 X 638).
