The 6 "Vera girls"
  • Subject: The 6 "Vera girls"
  • From: Elmsterj@aol.com

Lawrence introduced 6 arilmedians, all prefaced with the name "Vera."  They were 'Vera-Anne' in golden yellow tones with a lavender violet fall flash; 'Vera-Beatrice' in blue violet tones; 'Vera-Louise' golden yellow with other colorings; 'Vera-Marina' in Naples yellow, old gold, and lavender tones; 'Vera-Olivia' in tones of cadmium yellow, maroon, and blue.  Only 'Vera-Ruby' is in the red-brown tones.  All have other colors of veining.  Some have fall spots.  So.....Eleanore's iris can't be any othe other "Vera girls."  Your iris is too tall for pumilas.  The beard on her iris has bronze or copper hairs too far out on the beards to match Lawrence's description.  I'm puzzled.
