HIST: "Drady"

From: HIPSource@aol.com

In a message dated 4/20/99 10:07:33 PM Eastern Daylight Time, Iarejan@aol.com 

<< but isn't that older iris called DRADY black and white?   It always looks 
like it is from the pictures I've seen and I think I saw it described that 
way at least once >>

Yep, there is very strong contrast between the dark purple and white on this 
darling little amoena, a picture of which you can see on the HIPS page as 
well. Notice that I put quotes on the name "Drady", since it is a little 
mystery iris, not registered with AIS--unless Mike has done so recently--and 
we don't know what the story is on it. 

"Drady" is one of the most interesting of the unknowns HIPS is working on, 
and the one iris for which this office received the most requests for source 
referrals last year. I assure you that you will find nothing lacking in the 
form if you are fortunate to grow this remarkably beautiful iris.
