From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1983: “Considered to be one of the most original new colors in Iris in the last few years. A rich yummy shade of bright ‘toasted-melon’. Can you imagine such a tint? Just to say coppery-tan-orange with tangerine beards sounds entirely too prosaic. See our illustration on page 15 and then try to describe it yourself. Good sized flowers averaging four to five buds per stem. If your choice is something different then this crowd pleaser will certainly fill the bill.

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1983: “Like a bright new penny, this Spanish orange self with tangerine beards with its many flowers sets off a clump in your garden with a loud bang!”
