Full Description

TB 36″ ML S6M rev.

From Howard Weed’s catalog for National Iris Gardens, 1946: “Novel blend Standards are closed, slightly ruffled, of copper lightly washed rose. Falls light rose, washed copper at edges, red-brown veining on gold ground at haft, orange beard.”

From the National Iris Garden catalog for 1947: “No richer shrine in all the floral kingdom than this novel blend. The flower, a copper rose ground with heavy brown venations suggestive of a plicata, is mysteriously veiled in metallic lavender. The plants multiply rapidly, blooming late over a period of three weeks.”
