Iris TB Mrs. Andrist

 

By Fryer 1919

Although Mrs. Andrist is registered as a tall bearded iris she is really the size of an intermediate at just 20 inches.  Many of these historic irise

s were shorter back then.  She is an amoena (a color classification) that has pure white standards above purple falls, reticulated with white, including a white edge on the falls.  The beard is sunny yellow.  Share her often as she is a fast grower and also has the bonus of being fragrant.  Originally listed in Mr. Fryer’s catalog from his business, Landsdown Farm, in Mantorville MN, in 1922.

Iris MTB Joseph’s Coat

By E. Tankesley – 1930

This historic miniature tall bearded iris is a sport of Honorabile. It was originally registered as TB but today is considered MTB. The standards are both white and yellow but are irregularly splotched and streaked, with no two being the same pattern.  The falls too can differ in their color and pattern but are usually splashed with yellow, purple, and red; the coat of many colors. This type of pattern is called a “broken” pattern. The beards are lemon yellow.  It stands about 20 inches tall and is a mid-season bloomer. Although it has been around since the 1930’s it was not introduced until 1989 by A. Katkamier. It is a fast grower and is very hardy. This iris was mixed up while naming in the 30’s with Kaleidoscope.  That one also has a broken pattern but is a little more yellow in general. For this reason you will sometimes see it called Joseph’s coat Katkamier.

Daylily Variegated Kwanzo

By Stout 1945

Variegated Kwanzo is unregistered, although it is historic as it was developed from a sport by the father of modern daylilies.  It is a 3 foot tall mid to late bloomer with a three inch, hose-in-hose, double orange/red flowers.  It’s main attractions is the variegated leaves (striped with white or cream).  The plant is also unusual as it is a triploid (this means it has three sets of chromosomes where most have two or four).  This makes it sterile but don’t worry, this plant has the ability to spread by runners.  I would not recommend keeping it in your regular daylily beds.  It is not as aggressive as the green form which has become a “ditch lily” in some places, but, do remove any plants that revert to green as they will spread faster.  The variegation is different with every scapes, some are even pure white.  Keep the ones that are interesting and get rid of the rest in a way that they won’t spread into the wild.  We don’t ship this one early in spring because we want to make sure that each fan that we send has nice variegation.

Iris Intermediate Loreley

By Goos and Koenemann -1906

This historic iris was registered as a TB but is now considered IB. It is really hardy and thrives on neglect. The name comes from the siren of the Rhine who with her song enchanted sailors and lured them to their death.

The standards are a glowing yellow while the falls are a velvety violet with distinct white and yellow veining and butter yellow edges. The beard is lemon yellow.

This plant is a vigorous grower with healthy foliage tinged at the base. Also a heavy bloomer. Cheerful!!

By De Candolle – 1813

Iris Flavescens

This historic tall bearded iris originally appeared in the 1910 Biltmore Nurseries catalog. It is a wild collected variety that is thought to be a naturally occurring hybrid. It was however once thought to be a separate species. A vigorous grower which flowers well and will persist even if not cared for. It is 30 inches tall. 

Falls and standards are pale yellow with light olive veining while it seems to glow with a more buttery yellow inside. It has lemon yellow beards and it is also fragrant!

Iris Blue Denim

By Warburton – 1958

I just love the color of this historic Standard Dwarf Bearded (SDB) Iris. It’s a true sky blue, the ruffled falls and standards are the same color but there is noticeable darker blue veining throughout and a yellow beard for accent.  This Iris pumila is about 12 inches tall and is great for the rock garden or front of the border.

Iris Cardinal

By Bliss, 1919

At three feet, this tall bearded iris is a Dominion seedling. It has perfect form and velvety texture.  Lavender standards and rose purple falls accented with yellow beards and white penciling, make this old but really good iris, one to have in your garden.  It is well branched and so it blooms for a long period. Zone 3.

Daylily Jean

By McDade-Schreiner – 1943

daylily-jean1I love this historic daylily.  It has coloration is similar to the classic “Frans Halls” with red/orange petals alternating with gold petals. It was actually bred more than 10 years before it’s more widely known look alike. There is a creamy gold mid-rib on the red petals of this dormant diploid. This is where the similarities end however. This plant is prized for its height at 38 inches tall, and because it is very late.  The petals are also longer, enough that it can be categorized as an unusual form. The plant won the AHS award of merit in 1951.
