Full Description

TB 36″ L

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1957: “The picture on the opposite page does not do justice to this new plum-colored iris with the rosy glow and soft brown hafts. Unique in color, the flowers large and perfectly formed; we are quite sure that you will find it a lovely garden subject and one that will attract immediate attention in any collection of the very finest. Not a gay color but rather one of subtle richness. Height 3 feet or over.”
