From Cooley’s Gardens catalogs:
(1944) “A distinct and warm shade of henna-copper. In his efforts to produce an iris of pure henna coloring, Dr, Kleinsorge secured some most interesting seedlings in tones of tan, brown and bronze. out of this series we selected Bryce Canyon, so named because of the similar colors found in the rock formations of one of America’s most famous tourist attractions. Note the especially broad haft, and finely held standards.”

(1945) “Self-colored, with bronze-yellow beard; a huge flower on 3-foot stems.”

(1947) “This Iris achieved instant popularity; in the 1946 Symposium it ranked in tenth position!”
