CLASS: Tall Bearded
BLOOM SEASON: Early to Mid
DESCRIPTION: Pure light blue self.
PARENTAGE: Eleanor's Pride X Salem
From the 1966 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: From Eleanor's Pride x Salem - two supremely beautiful light blues - comes this fair charmer with lilting ruffling and the serene purity of a cerulean summer sky. I hasten to explain that it is bluer than the engraver's proof and is also normally more heavily ruffled. Nothing more beautiful was ever seen in blues. A perfect self except for a blue-white beard; its rippling cadence of form brought a host of admirers toward it in the garden who exclaimed over the grace, the ruffling, and the purity of the sky blue color. Blue Chiffon will bring a frosty sparkle into your garden.
