Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1955 “Dark Iris have been rather restricted to smaller flowers, shorter stems and generally to colors on the blue side of black. Congo represents a real achievement in that it is the first large dark irisn with a reddish silken sheen on the top of a coal black undertone. With its extra large blooms this gloriously rich black with red tints fills a long vacant niche in the iris spectrum 10.00”
