TB 38″ LaM S9M

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “M. 38″. A phenomenal break in color. Large, precisely formed flower of vivid rose carmine. Possessing unrivaled lustre, a clump of this exotic color is truly inspiring.”

From the Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “One of the most startling colour ‘breaks’ in the iris world and one of the best irises we have raised. The flowers are simply huge but in perfect balance, and well spaced on 3 ft stems. The standards are a brilliant rosy carmine with bronze shading, while the falls are a deeper tone of the same shade. The whole flower is so vivid that it stands out from other irises and immediately becomes the focus of attention.”

From the 1954 Schreiner’s Iris Catalog: “This sensational, vividly colored Iris is always the focus of attention. One of the richest of all the rose toned Iris, the giant blooms posses an unrivaled lustre. In tone, it is light carmine or rose-cerise, as gorgeous a color as can be imagined. Without doubt, it is one of the most popular Iris we grow. Fragrant. ”
