From the Stevens Brothers catalog for 1952/53: “Each year sees the Bearded Iris gain an added brilliance as the brighter notes of Nature’s colorbox yield to the breeder’s assault. Here we have an iris that is almost gaudy – standards of bright apricot gold, and falls of orangey-copper-red, brilliant as some tropic bird. Fair substance, and very free-flowering.”
