From Rainbow Iris Gardens catalog for 1963: “While pre-landing reports from Mars are meager, I envision this iris as giving us a preview of what our space-man may find out there, for it is surely “out of this world.” It may be horned, spooned or flounced, but in its most exotic form has creamy white 3/4″ spoons, or sometimes 2″ flounces, standing out boldly against bright crimson falls. The upper third of falls is white, heavily decorated with maroon veins – and above are the mouth-watering pale apricot standards.”
