Pond Lily is one of the three very best irises I grow here
in the valley of the red-hot sun.It doesn’t rot.It
doesn’t pineapple.It blooms
faithfully, and I have never seen a poor stalk or flower on it. I think it’s a much better iris
than its half sibling, Celebration Song and much more deserving of the Dykes.At least it is for me.
I have one nice seedling from it already and about fifty
more to look forward to seeing next year.

POND LILY came here via a trade. I requested it at a time it was gettin' kicked
pretty hard in print by some. A Southen Californian for whom's opinion I have
much respect gave it a sad rating then also.
POND LILY has become a much appreciated aquisition here since then. It would be
easy enough to criticize for the slightly open or somewhat short standards. Me?
I like it. I like the calming effect of the pastel colors, the combination of
colors present, the smooth trasition of one into the other. Increase has been
7x. The branching passes, the stalk is strong nor has it ever fallen over. But,
as much, I like the big fat style arms.
