Loomis-Long, R. & I. 1942
TB 36" M R1M
From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1946: "Winner of the Dykes Medal in 1945, this rich red-violet seedling of Wm. Mohr has acquired the greatest popularity in the shortest time of any Iris ever introduced. One of the very largest of all Irises, the great blooms are daintily ruffled, of a silky texture and remarkable substance. The stems are well branched and at least three feet tall. Because it has proven to be hardy everywhere and increases rapidly the price has reached a point where every genuine Iris connoisseur can and should own it."
