Full Description

TB M Y8D

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1947: “A tall and large flowered red trimmed plicata of a pleasing tone of burgundy-red. It is so heavily trimmed that at a distance it gives a red effect. Form, substance and stem are good, and it increases fast and blooms freely.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “Marked a plaid red like Highland Scotch kilts. Red marked plicata of a pleasing tone of burgundy red. It is so heavily trimmed that at a distance it gives a red effect.”

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1947: “A tall proud plicata that is so deeply trimmed in pleasing tones of Burgundy red that at a distance it gives a red effect.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1955: “A large burgundy-red trimmed plicata that from a distance appears to be red. It is a vigorous grower of fine form, substance and blooms freely. This is an outstanding plicata.”
