TB 36″ L
From Cooley’s 1959 catalog: “A new red, with a name in keeping with the impression it creates in the garden! Broad falls of brilliant color and heavy substance, slightly waved; it owes its fine form to CORDOVAN, one of its parents.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1962 “A bold red from the brown side with wonderful substance and rigidly upright standards. The color is vibrant, between cedar and India red, and the blooms are of fine size. HM’55. AM’60.”
From Fleur de Lis catalog 1965 “A large ruffled bitone. Standards are cedar red and the falls a rich India red. A bit difficult to grow here and in some other areas but certainly worth while for it is a top notch red. AM 1969. 1.00.”
(Savage X (Cordovan x Molten)), HM 1955, AM 1959.
