Its introductory listing in Schreiner’s 1961 catalog reads: “Here is an iris of original coloring, unlike any other known variety – neither a red, or an orange, nor a brown, but a true henna. Its coloring has been compared to the brilliant copper tone in the Austrian ‘Copper Rose’. The color is so novel it stands out in any company. An iris of leathery substance, large size, jaunty form, glossy texture and excellent branching. If you enjoy richly burnished metallic tones, plant ‘Brasilia’.”
