Re: Jane Phillips

The Jane you posted is perhaps a bit too long in the tooth for 50s 
form. There is a nice photo in the 1958 Cooley's Gardens catalog of 
Jane Phillips, however, the blue color is so garish that it will not 
do for identification except on shape. The shape is a very close 
match for the JP that I posted.

Your iris is extremely evocative of Essig's line of blues...and most 
closely resembles California Blue (Essig 1929). It was (is) VERY tall 
and has excellent substance for an iris of its era, all of which fit 
in with your description of the JP that you grow.

Cheers,

Mike
