Full Description

TB 48″ E

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “No flower was ever more appropriately named. The stalks rise to a height of four feet, bearing close to a dozen great blooms with large closed standards and wide flaring falls. This is far and away ahead of other tan iris now on the market. It is a Kleinsorge seedling introduced by us last season. See page 5.” [References the color catalog scan]

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1941: “Bearing a most appropriate title, this iris is by far the best tan in our entire collection. The stalks rise to a height of four feet, bearing close to a dozen great blooms with large closed standards and wide flaring falls. Practically a self in color, it makes a magnificent companion to the blue of Great Lakes. Note the perfection of form in the picture on page 8.” [References the black and white catalog scan]
