From Long’s Gardens catalog for 1960: “Bearing a striking resemblance to its pollen parent, Lady Albright, this bright medley of riotous color stands out as the iris bloom gets under way. The falls are a rich rosy deep lavender bordered by the coppery hue of the standards. The border is much more pronounced than in Lady Albright. Originated by and named for Dr. R. Wayne Moody, whose untimely demise has lessened our ranks of Colorado hybridizers.”

Note: Introduced as ‘Dr. Moody’ in 1960 by Long’s Iris Gardens. See The Mysterious Dr. Moody in the Reading Room for more information.
