This listing will show the latest cultivars I found on the "Superstition Iris Gardens" website (Facebook) that we (Garden.org aka ATP) did not have yet. As always, check with Rick & Roger about availability.

so, you are probably asking why I put this last one (Barbara Walther) in the "Historic category or list when it was introduced in 2015.

That's a good question.

Because I am "special"?

No! Because it is special.

This was registered in 1959! Here is the AIS wiki info on it.

1959, Casselman
'Barbara Walther' ( Arthur Casselman, R. 1959). TB, 37" (94 cm), Midseason bloom. Color Class-W1, Pure-white self, white beard. 'Tranquility' x ( 'New Snow' x 'San Francisco' x 'Theodolinda') x 'Minnie Colquitt')) x 'Spanish Peaks'))). Trails End 2015.

It is a pretty white Greg. Is it then a 2015 introduction even though it was registered long ago?

I think technically it is indeeed a 2015 introduction. AIS usually releases the name after a certain period of time. So for some reason, it was not introduced in the expected time frame. But in the interium, no one wanted to use the name for any other cultivar. So it was still available in 2014/2015.

It would be nice to find out the back story of this iris cultivar, especially since it took 56 years to get it introduced! Smiling

I like the picture they took of Freckles.

Eisblau (ice blue) is well named, and quite nice.
