From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1944: “Coppery gold standards and falls of solid chestnut-brown without any red or even near red. A very late iris that brings something new into the variegata field. There is such a contrast to the standards and falls, the latter decidedly rounded and uniformly brown without haft markings, that it commands immediate attention in the garden. Very tall, almost four feet, with extra fine branching and a wealth of large flowers.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1948: “A warm orangey cast… vibrantly colored Iris. It brings to this class a warmth of coloring many of the other varieties lack. ”
From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1950: “With wild abandon, mother nature has created this stunning variegata. The late flowering Iris has coppery gold standards and chestnut brown falls.”
From Marble Iris Gardens 1952 “A very late flowering iris with coppery gold standards and falls of a uniform chestnut-brown. This tall iris blooms with many blossoms and is very different. There is a great difference in the standards and falls, the latter decidedly rounded and uniform brown without haft markings, so that you will notice it at once.”
