Full Description

TB 48″ ML Y9M

A classic – hardy, with very vigorous growth. Now after all these years it is widespread across the country.

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1940: “A tall and very well proportioned large new iris with rosy tan standards and rosy red falls. Produced by E.G. Lapham, of Elkhart Indiana. Flowers, stalk and foliage are of unusually large size.”

From National Iris Garden’s catalog for 1942: “Golden-bronze and red. Closed standards of golden-bronze; velvety, down-falling falls of medium rose-red, with veining on gold ground conspicuous at haft. Large flowers on good stalks.”
