Full Description

TB 40″ ML S7D

From Quality Iris Gardens 1938   M. 40″. We have introduced some fine iris for Mr. Grinter and firmly believe some feat of magic must be responsible for the smooth, lacquered finish and lack of veining which characterizes his seedlings. This variety is probably the finest of all reds. A striking self of about the shade of the falls of the famous Shirvan. A seven-inch blossom with wide velvety falls and arched
standards of a rich glowing velvet y red with rich orange beard, fragrant, well branched and hardy. Only a few plants available. $30.00. ”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “A very late, very large, and especially velvety deep red self. After more than ten years it continues to hold its own, right up front among the best red irises. Many people will hardly believe it costs only a dollar! Has not increased fast and supply is usually short.”

From Tell’s Iris Gardens 1951  “Splendid red and equally gratifying as the parent of Garden Glory, ranger and other fine reds. A grandchild of Dominion (through Woton) which would account for its ability to put quality into its seedlings HM 1937. .75.”
