I've had this clump for a while. It's probably one of the first irises I got from our club when I started as a youth 12 years ago.

It almost never has more than 6 or 7 buds. Each branch only has one bud in the sockets.

Many others on this list have used PERSIAN GOWN as a parent, and a lot of the seedlings are available to see in the archives, but I didn't find any post of PG itself.

.... just in case you'd like to know what she looks like . .. :-)
