TB 40″ M S4D

From Cooley’s Iris Garden’s 1941 catalog: “An odd blend of rather deep tones of plum and copper, and gold. Entirely different from any Iris we have ever introduced, it calls to mind the new French iris Charlotte Millet, but is deeper and far more colorful. As will be noted in the color plate, this iris possesses attractive form in its suggestion of ruffling, without loss of balance. An Iris to be admired at close range and one which we surmise would be especially suited to bringing indoors and associating with oriental rugs. About 40″ tall, perfectly branched, and it flowers over a very long season. The individual blooms are of very large size and hold up splendidly in any weather.”
