Re: Descriptions please
I have catalogs from Cooley's and Schreiners, and have come up with most of
the descriptions you wanted.
New Dawning: M. 36"
Large ruffled flowers have clear, lemon-yellow standards and brilliant, clean
white falls with a definite border of lemon-yellow. Yellow beards.
Wonderful form, substance and width. Seven buds on three branches.
Marriage Vows: ML. 38"
Oyster cream standards are tinted lavender near their edges with a beige
infused center. Falls are lavender, paler around beard, with beige on the
hafts. Pale blue-white beards. HM'89
Cracklin Burgundy: M. 35"
A fine smooth burgundy color on both standards and falls with beard of an
identical hue. Well spaced branching, nine buds. HM'83; AM'86
Maleguena: EL. 40"
Heavily ruffled light orange self with a white area around the tangerine
beards. The blossoms are evenly fluted all around and the color will liven
up your iris beds without overpowering them. HM'87; AM'89
Banana Frappe': M. 38"
This new and improved yellow has hughe flowers, up to 8" across! Plus gread
bud count, up to ten per stalk! Gently ruffled yellow self with
yellow-orange beard. Fine branching.
Striking variegated foliage is a combination of rich green and creamy white
stripes. The delicate pale purple flower of the old world form is somewhat
insignificant compared witht he wonderful foiage that grows beneath it.

and 6 buds. HM'81; AM'83

the country. Vigorous in growth habit sending up multiple stalks of soft
white flowers in spring and again summer through fall. HM'86; AM'90
