<<The iris that immediately comes to mind is Trudy (Tompkins '71) I will give
the catalog description from a '71 Cooley's [....]

"Trudy (Tompkins, '64) VL. 36" here is a color break in the amoena class.

For what it may be worth, this sounds a lot like the first iris that came to
my mind.  This is one illustrated in the Random House book of Perennials, vol
