From Bonnewitz catalog, 1927: ZULU (Bliss) — Dominion Seedling. This is one of the very newest of the Dominion Seedlings. Here is the English description: “This variety is a sister seedling of Swazi, and is one of the famous Dominion race. It is remarkably free-flowering and has the additional advantage of being late — a quality which is enhanced by the substantial texture of the flowers, which last a long time in good condition. The standards are a clear rich steely aniline blue, and the falls a fine dark velvety purple, paler at the edges. This is a much better Iris than Dominion in every way.” This variety bloomed for us last year, but on being moved to a new location, it failed to bloom for us this year. $12.00.
