'Cleo' 1945 is a sibling seedling of 'Cleo Murrell' 1941 registered by Mrs. Murrell 4 years after she registered 'Cleo Murrell' as just 'Cleo'. Their is only one known example of 'Cleo' 1945 that I am aware of in the collection of IrisParadise Gardens in Germany. Their photo I have seen of it seems to appear almost identical to its sibling 'Cleo Murrell' in just about every aspect except it appears that maybe the color and patina on it are maybe not as prominant as Cleo Murrell.
