From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1942: “Every hybridizer strives to secure an iris unlike any variety already in commerce, a really distinct variation. Such an iris is Mulberry Rose. A delectable, lovely, mulberry rose … an unusual color in the deep pink class. Its intrinsic value is its novel color, striking in the garden and unusual because of its singular color. Size is large, stem tall and branched displaying the beauty of the flower to fine advantage. We consider it one of the finest iris we have offered.”
From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1945: “Aptly described by the name, this iris is actually something new and different in coloring. Very tall stems hold the self-colored blooms well aloft and the branching is good. A soft and pleasing color, most unusual, it might be termed a deep pinkish mulberry, strongly shaded brown. The heavy bronze beard is an added asset.”
