SHIPSHAPE [all one word] (S. Babson, R. '68) ...TB, 38", M...Medium blue self.  Pacific Panorama X Epic...Melrose '69.
Check List 1969, next to last entry, p. 191.
This occurs in a large number of pedigrees, by the way, and is one of the sources of wide, wide hafts in modern blues and whites.  The photo is of a darker blue than I would expect from Babson's variety.  That is not to say the plant is mislabeled.  I never grew it myself.  Whether or not it is correctly identified, it is a lovely iris.
SHIPSHAPE is a significant historic.
