TB 36″ M R6M

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “Here is the red iris that actually looks red, and has been declared the nearest approach to scarlet thus far obtained in this flower. It is of good size, of beautiful semi-flaring form, three feet in height, and a free bloomer. Texture is velvety but excitingly brilliant. Limited stock. A Lapham introduction in 1939.”
