Knowlton, R&I 1947

TB M R4D

From Diehl’s Gardens catalog for 1954: “A handsome garnet-red self. Cupped standards. The falls are rounded and flaring. Heavy bronze beard. A good red and a fine grower.”

From Fairmount Gardens catalog for 1955: “Seldom do we see an iris that is as distinctive in form and color as this handsome red. A garnet red self with broad and cupped standards, the falls, flaring and rounded, and thick short bronze beard. The flowers do not burn or fade under hot sun, and remain in fine condition due to their heavy substance. Good branching and growth.”
