From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1982: “A real outpost on the frontier of red Iris. This vibrant red beauty is one of the finest branched red Iris yet. It has the unusual growing habit of starting its first branch 6 inches from the ground… giving 5 branches plus a spur. The stem’s budding is all double socketed; a few even triple thus sporting up to 12 buds per stem. To see is to believe! We are indeed using superlatives but this handsome red stands out as if on dress parade. Its rich maroon-ruby red color is nicely captured in our illustration. A show bench champion!”
