FROM HIPS (Historic Iris Preservation Society) website:


M. Williamson, 1936

TB 40" M W3D, A classic! Wildly popular for many years, and still easily found on favorites lists and in commerce. From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1938: "A new iris so far in advance of others of similar color combination that they are simply not in the race. With clean white standards and bright purple falls, it might have been called 'Elk's Temple,' so well does it call to mind the colors of that well known fraternal organization. The flowers are large and are borne on well branched stalks reaching almost forty inches in height."

(Dorothy Dietz X Cantabile), HM 1937, AM 1938, Dykes Medal 1940.

Note: The variety Bright Hour is often passed around as Wabash. The true Wabash has purple based foliage (PBF), Bright Hour does not.
