Pencil Sketch

Plough, R. 1971 / I. 1972

TB 30″ M

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1973: “Widely flaring, beautifully formed plicata of grayed tones of barium yellow. The standards are practically solidly colored. The fall are lined with plicata marking radiating from the beard giving the effect of a pencil sketch. There is a light violet area around the orange beard. The flowers open darker and soon attain a lighter hue, thus furthering the effect of an artist’s sketching. An exciting variety. 3 branches and terminal. Fertile both ways.”
