Indeed, as EASTER HOLIDAY was a Cook-Douglas winner and was the pollen
parent of GRACE NOTE (Hamblen 65), a cultivar used extensively in SDB
breeding, it received frequent mention in garden notes published in the
late 60s and early 70s. It was used in breeding, although not as
extensively as some other stud iris.
