GABRIEL (1921)


Tartarin x Morwell

An exceedingly free flowering, tall and branching variety, this iris carries very large and particularly well formed flowers. The Standards are bright clear lavender blue, very broad (2¾"), rounded and finely arched. The Falls are light violet blue, suffused deeper at the haft, as broad as the standards and flat hanging. A really beautiful iris, well up to Mr Bliss's high standard of size and quality.( Orpington:1923)
