SDB 'Pele' has bloom stalks, also a

purple with blue beards and her flowers resemble a Tectorum. Tom Tadford little
gave her to me last fall. Tom or Francesca AP9008-1 has a bloomstalk showing
color. My other I. pumila given to me by Suzanne Sluizer just finished
blooming. Very large flowers, good substance, bicolor burgundy with dark
