TB 38″ M

From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog for 1960: “Large, with very broad rounded petals and lovely flaring form. A glistening copper with a smooth undertone of bright Henna red. A brownish beard and very clean haft adds to its beauty and we consider this one of the brightest we have ever grown.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1960: “This gay colored red iris is of glistening copper with an underlay of henna-red which seems to dance and sparkle in the garden as its piquant and spicy coloring radiates in the sun’s rays. Smooth, sleek hafts and a self colored copper-brown beard complete the fine color harmony of this unusual red.”
