Iris Nada
Iris Nada in the San Marcos Growers gardens
 

A plant that we had sold up until 1996 as a form of Iris japonica but since discovering it was a named hybrid, we have sold this beautiful Butterfly Iris as Iris 'Nada'. This plant resulted from the cross between I. japonica and either I. wattii or I. confusa. It was created by James N. Giridlian at Oakhust Garden in Arcadia in the 1950's.

In Victoria Padilla's book Southern Cailfornia Gardens this plant was described as follows: "One of [Giridlian's] earliest introductions was an iris cross that he called 'Nada' which, because of its evergreen foliage and dainty orchidlike quality of its numerous flowers, it has become one of the most popular iris of its kind in California and in the southern states."
