A Japanese Iris
Mr. Burbank's experiments, as already mentioned, have largely had to do with the Japanese iris. He raised great quantities of them at Sebastopol a few years ago. The combinations of colors are beautiful beyond description, and they vary in all shades of the rainbow. Sometimes the double ones take on handsome and unusual shapes. These are typical specimens of a more usual form.
