TB 38″ M-VL S9D

From Longfield Iris Farm catalog for 1936: “Eng. Bronze Medal [1933]. A glorious Iris of rich Oriental coloring. S. buff suffused grey fading to yellow as the flower ages. F. rich plum red with intense reddish brown flush at haft. Margined lavender buff. Very late.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1938: “Said to contain more colors than any other iris in commerce, this serenely beautiful flower in oriental smoky shades almost eludes any attempt to describe it accurately. Standards are creamy buff faintly edged lavender, the falls very rich velvety chestnut merging into purple, thence gradually fading out to a margin that repeats the color of the standards. Beard is a very rich orange. A very late variety, tall, of large size.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1946: “Unusual oriental blend, late blooming. Standards are creamy buff faintly edged lavender. Falls very rich velvety chestnut merging into purple. Thumbnail edge repeats the color of the standards.”
