From AIS Bulletin #229, Spring 1978 Introducing WESTERN SPRING (Walt Luihn, 1978). #75-12. TB, 35", M-L. Del Monte X Town and Country. Here on the West Coast, and especially here in California, our springs are generally refreshing and delightful, and we feel our 1978 introduction, WESTERN SPRING, is also. This heavily laced heliotrope (RHS 636) lovely we hope will welcome you to our spring on the West Coast, and will delight you with its wide, crisp, laced petals, frilled stylearms, good branching and bud count. It is accented by a wide yellow beard, blending to pale heliotrope at its tip. Welcome to our Western spring!. $25.00. Luihn's Iris Garden.
