TB, 40″ (102 cm), Midseason to late bloom. Between saddle leather brown and caramel brown with slightly lighter striations shading off from cadmium orange beard. (‘Temple Gold‘ x ‘Ormolu’) X seedling involving ‘Dutch Chocolate‘, ‘Caliente‘, ‘Oriental Glory‘, ‘Huntsman‘, ‘Bang‘, ‘Stop’, ‘Captain Gallant’, ‘Tampico’.

From Schreiners Iris Lovers Catalog 1986 “A whopper! This massive 6.5 by 4.5inch self cuts an imposing stance in the garden. The smoothly colored brown petals glisten with a hint of sundance gold. Fine serrations trim the edges of each petal. The stem has two branches with 6 to 7 buds”.
