From The Iris Guidebook -Rainbow Iris Farm 1958 (Lloyd Austin); ” Areal break in iris patterns and a rea laddition to my ever growing list of Autumn Bloomers. TomCraig seems to have a way of bringing forth the most interesting and unusual combination of color. Here the under color is golden amber over which burnt umber and sepia seem to be glazed in a smoky,radiating pattern. Surely unbeatable blood for those seeking rich colorings”.

eFrom Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1959: “M. 36″ Fancy type plicata with golden amber background. Smoky overlay of darker brown tones in a radiating pattern.”
