AIS: TB, 37″ (94 cm), Midseason bloom. Golden brown self blend; ruffled. N 786-1 ( ‘Spellbound’ x ‘Inca Chief‘) X ‘Olympic Torch‘. Schreiner 1967. Honorable Mention 1968, Judges Choice 1968.
…ETERNAL FLAME is the best over-all selection with fine form and bright golden-brown coloring. It’s main drawback is that it refuses to bloom each year, and it increases sparingly. [Joe Ghio, “The Eye of the Beholder,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 44.]
From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1971 “Gracefully carried flowers that are large full and round of a glistening vivid golden bronze color, rich and vibrant. The beard is of the same matching color as the petals. A most striking color and immensely valuable as a garden iris. With its good branching,and 8-9 buds it is by far the most outstanding late blooming iris and one that is literally eye popping.”
