TB 38″ LaM Y9D

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “A stunning new variegata for the iris fancier. Standards are topaz in color; falls are pigeon blood red edged with topaz. Burnished gold beard.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1949: “Rich topaz-yellow standards shot with bronze; the falls deep pigeon blood-red. Haft is solidly colored, clear into the throat, giving the flower an extra rich effect. Not brilliant and garish, Rajah Brooke is an Iris in luxurious, subdued hues remindful of an Oriental rug.”
