Re: TB: Quaker Lady

QUAKER  LADY.  TB-M-S3L (Farr 1909); Farr 1909; Wing 1920; Sheets 1928;

(little square) sl.

Betty provided the above description of QUAKER LADY from the 1939
Alphabetical Iris Check List. The "TB-M-S3L" code means it is a "TB"  that
midseason ("M") and that it is blend bitone or bicolor "S3" of  light ("L")
The following description of QUAKER LADY in my book (p.190) is  based in part
on the Sheets 1928 catalogue listed in the Check  List"

"'Quaker  Ladyb is a blended bicolor in pastel shades of lavender, violet
yellow.  It has smoky-lavender standards and  mauve- to ageratum-violet falls
that become bronze toward the edges.  A yellow glow radiates from the center
of  the flower, a glow enhanced by lush orange-yellow beards."

I  hope this is helpful. Clarence Mahan
