From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: SPOONED PREMIERE (Austin '60) ML-30". Behold in life-like color, the world's first Spooned Iris. An almost magical development of my world-famous Horned Iris. Here the ends of the three horns have mystically enlarged and subtly transformed into broad decorative spoons, adding a charming embellishment. Sets seed; pollen variable, often plentiful. (Austin Horned Seedling J-910 X Horned Rosyred). Regularly $20; on $25 order $7.95; 3 for $22.65.
