TB 40″ M S4D
From Cooley’s Iris Garden’s 1941 catalog: “An odd blend of rather deep tones of plum and copper, and gold. Entirely different from any Iris we have ever introduced, it calls to mind the new French iris Charlotte Millet, but is deeper and far more colorful. As will be noted in the color plate, this iris possesses attractive form in its suggestion of ruffling, without loss of balance. An Iris to be admired at close range and one which we surmise would be especially suited to bringing indoors and associating with oriental rugs. About 40″ tall, perfectly branched, and it flowers over a very long season. The individual blooms are of very large size and hold up splendidly in any weather.”
From Fairmount Iris Gardens 1946: “An unusual and hardy and attractive blend of plum, copper, and gold. It reminds one of the French iris Charlotte Millet, but it is deeper and more colorful with firm substance and the stalks are tall and sturdy. ”
From Tells Iris Garden Catalog 1951 “Rich plum and copper blend. Overlooked as a parent. Woiuld suggest using Gypsy Rose, Cape Bon, Honeyflow, Casa Morena, Thre Oaks,Dream Along, Sunset Road, SusitnaSunset.”
