From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1959: “EML. From its plicata ancestry, one would not expect this very smooth, dark burgundy iris. The huge, heavily substanced flower has standards well doomed and falls wide and flaring. Its sultry beauty is enhanced by a wide brown beard. The tall stalk is strong and well branched. It blooms over a long period and is very hardy. Fertile both ways.”
