Full Description

TB 34″ M B3D
From Carl Salbach Iris Catalog 1929: “S. royal purple; F. velvety blackish-violet. Flowers of large size. 30 in.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “A very dark, solid purple from the Sass Brothers. One of the darkest of all irises, and a very early one. Flowers are of large size, rounded in shape, and without any veining or reticulation. A very free blooming iris on medium height stems. Planted with yellow Desert Gold, which blooms at the same time, a most striking garden effect is created.”

From The Iris City Garden catalog for 1940: “Rich black purple bi-color with velvety, almost black F. This is one of the darkest of all iris, and an unusually early flowering one. Blossoms are of large size.”
