HIPS Photo Gallery


From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1944: “Coppery tan self with very heavy gold beard. The flowers are extra large and the stalks well branched. This is an iris you will like, and one which has not received sufficient comment.”

From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog for 1951: “Large nylon-tan. Possibly has been overlooked as a superb parent. I think it is a better breeder for quality than Prairie Sunset. Produces shell pinks when bred to them.”

(Amitola x Sandalwood).
