Foreword<br />

Where can you make a more worthwhile and permanent<br />

investment than in your home or garden ? Remember:-the beauty and<br />

charm of a lovely flower is not affected by an economic depression.<br />

Plant iris. They pay big dividends with unequalled regularity.<br />

W'e extend to you a cordial invitation to come to our<br />

gardens during the blooming season. Our earliest varieties commence to<br />

flower in March and our latest continue into June. Visitors are thus<br />

greeted by a changing display throughout the season. We are constantly<br />

adding new varieties of outstanding merit so that each year our display<br />

is more impressive than the last.<br />

In our catalogues we have endeavored to list only chose<br />

varieties that are worthy of a place in your garden. Each year we include<br />

some of the outstanding new introductions and take out those varieties<br />

that have thus been surpassed. This makes it possible for our customers<br />

to order from our catalgoues with the assurance that all varieties selected<br />

are outstanding.<br />

fr<br />

II we can be of any help in solving your garden problems<br />

we shall consider it a privilege. Come to the gardens if possible; if not,<br />

we invite your correspondence.<br />

CHINA LANTERN (Essig, 1933). This iris adds an encirely new color note<br />

to the garden and is different from anything yet produced. The<br />

striking features are its brilliant carrying colors in the garden and the<br />

vigor and profusion of its inflorescence. The color is bright Bordeaux<br />

red falls and old gold standards which defy description. The flowering<br />

stalks are three or four-branched and from 3% to 4 feet tall. The<br />

foliage is large and clean. It comes from a long succession of Essig<br />

hybrids crossed with Cardinal, the latter giving it the brilliant red<br />

falls.... $10.00<br />

MRY COAST (Essig, 1933). A beautiful, large, clear ivory self of fine<br />

texture and substance. The falls are thick, wide and flaring and show<br />

off to the very best advantage. The standards are erect and give<br />

proper symmetry to the flowers. The stems are well branched and<br />

three feet high. The foliage is vigorous. It is one of the earliest to<br />

flower in the spring, blooming with us from the middle of March until<br />

the last of April, with a tendency to bloom again in the fall of the year.<br />

The soft pale color adds a new note to the whites and vellows now<br />

offered 5.00<br />

SHINING WATERS (Essig, l9j3). A reflection of the clear blue weslern<br />

skies in still, shining waters. The best of the many smooth, clear blues<br />

obtained after years of progressive breeding along a particular line.<br />

It is a fitting climax of such parentage as Caterina, Carthusian, Marian<br />

Mohr, California Blue, (Jncle Remus, and Moa. The self color is<br />

about midway between the shades of the darker Sierra Blue and the<br />

lighter Pale Moonlight, yet it is really not a competitor of either.<br />

The firm, wax-like texture and perfect finish, symmetry, and poise of<br />

'the falls and standards are enhanced by a bright orange beard. The<br />

flowering stalks are straight, three to four-branched and from four to<br />

five feet tall. Last May it was rated 94 in the garden by an accredited<br />

judge. It combines the smoothness and finish of Hoogiana with the<br />

size and poise of Easter Morn. 5.00<br />

TENAYA (Essig, 1933). One of the best of the many rich, velvety, dark<br />

purple selfs which have dttracted so much attention in the originator's<br />

garden during recent years. After comparing it with other new offerings<br />

in the same general color range, we enthusiastically include it in<br />

new creations for this year. The color is a rich raisin-purple with<br />

iridescent reflections, the standards changing somewhat to dull<br />

auricula purple. There is an aniline beard and old gold at the bases<br />

of the stylets which light up the interior as by a lamp. The substance<br />

is certainly up to the highest standards. It is of sturdy Modoc and<br />

Cardinal parentage. The flower stalks are well branched and three feec<br />

high, It is a conspicuous and attractive garden and show variety.... 5.00<br />



ARBUTUS (Lothrop, 1933) H. M. A. I. S. This is a seedling of Mother of<br />

Pearl by Dejazet. The finely formeC large flowers are on tall well<br />

brancheJ stalks. The domed standards are pinkish lavender ar rhe iips<br />

shaCing to light yellow at the base..Substance and texture are lirm<br />

and fine with a smooth lustrous surface, which cause it to resist rain<br />

and hail, hot sun and burning wind. Height 36 inches. $5.00<br />

LAURENTIA (Dr. F. F. Villiams, 1933). This beardless iris is a beautiful<br />

vBlyety cerise purple self with a large golden signal patch on the falls.<br />

The flowers are largel than those of Cacique and are carried on 40-inch<br />

stems. It should be planted in a moist location. 5.00<br />

PERSIAN PRINCESS. A pogc-regelia hybrid which is superior to anything<br />

of its type we have ever seen. The large, well shapeC flowers are<br />

Bishop's purple veined with Maddeq violet, the haft being veined<br />

with seal brown. The falls are exceptionally rich and velvety. A single<br />

stalk used as a cut flower is sure to cause a sensation. This iris is taller<br />

than others of its type, growing to a full 3 feet in our garden. ..... 5.00<br />


(M illiken, I 9 3 3). An extremely vigorous spuria resembling<br />

Ochroleuca in color and growing to a height of 64 inches. The flowers<br />

are larger than those of any pther spuria, the falls being 4 inches long<br />

by 2 inches wide and the standards \y"<br />

inches tall by I /, inches wide.<br />

Because of its outstanding superiority, this variety was awarded Honqrable<br />

Mention by the A. I. S.. . . 2.50<br />

to the gardener who wishes to<br />

specialize on this interesting species.<br />

The planting of iris should no longer<br />

be confined simply to one small bed.<br />

For borders, walks and mass effects no<br />

perennial is more pleasing. Many have<br />

encire sections of their gardens devoted<br />

to iris.<br />

It is impossible to lay down any hard<br />

and fast rules regarding the culture of<br />

iris, as conditions aie varied. They<br />

thrive in any soil, unless it is pure sand.<br />

When u,'ell established they should be<br />

given enough water, particularly just<br />

before and during biooming time, to<br />

keep them in good growing condition.<br />

Varieties Grouped by Color<br />

Many of our customers wish to get a general idea of the garden values of different irises<br />

without spending time to read through the entire list carefully. To help them we have grouped<br />

many of our listed varieties into color groups. Sometimes the same variety may occur in more<br />

than one group if its colors will allow it to be used where those groups are wanted in a planting.<br />

It would be possible to subdivide each group into subgroups but no attempt has been made<br />

to do this as little would be gained for landscape purposes by so doing.<br />

The great variety of color combinations in irises makes any classification of this sort of nothing<br />

more than suggestive value. Color is only one of the elements which give iris character. The<br />

height, carriage, shape, substance, branching, abundance of blooms, and the character of the<br />

foliage, must be considered.<br />

Our Srcc(<br />

The ideal climate in which our gardens<br />

are located produces a quality of scock<br />

which is not surpassed. We are ofcen<br />

asked if our irises are hardy in colder<br />

climates. We ship them all over the<br />

United States with perfect satisfaction<br />

and receive repeat orders year after<br />

year. As our season of blooming is advanced<br />

six weeks or so ahead of that<br />

in the Eastern States, it allows us to<br />

ripen the rhizomes in our rainless summer<br />

and send them without danger<br />

from rot in time to become well established<br />

for the following spring. This is<br />

an advantage too imporlant to overlook.<br />

A more euphonious name by which this group is often known is that of Stylosa. While<br />

scientifically we must talk of unguicularis, becatfse this name was given first, in our gardens may<br />

we not grow stylosa? The garden use o[ the iris in this group is reserved for those who live in<br />

the milder climates.<br />

The plants start blooming in the fall and bloom throughout the winter. They grow wild in<br />

Algeria, Greece and Asia Min6r. The foliage is grass-like an-d the flowers are borneitn stem-like<br />

paits, really elongated perianth tubes, 8 to 16 inches long. The flower is one of great refinement<br />

and is delightful in the house.<br />
