Re: Lowell's Historics -- Part I

In a message dated 96-12-08 16:30:29 EST, you write:

<< ALADDIN'S WISH (1943)  White brushed blue.  
 >From Tell's catalog:  "Unusual!  Blue brushed gold."

ALADDIN'S WISH is one of the few historic irises in the luminata pattern
(Also, PRETTY PANSY, which was listed.)  Re ZANTHA, which you listed, it is
one of the finest yellow irises ever produced, and it competes quite well
with modern yellows.  In fact, this is one of those great irises that should
have, but did not, win the Dykes Memorial Medal.  Any of the three irises I
have named will draw lots of attention in your garden, even if all your
others are "modern" irises.  Clarence Mahan in VA
