Katy Petts 1978
Raised by John D Taylor this SDB iris from M9xK81 (involving Curlew and Garda) was selected for trial at Wisley in 1975 as seedling P5(/1. It received an HC in 1978 together with an AGC and was registered in that year. It is a very pretty 14” iris with standards mid-blue and falls the same mid-blue with a violet spot. The flower is enlivened by good beards of a sparkling pale blue. (BIS YB 1982.19)
