TB. Late bloom. Color Class-S6D. (‘King Juba’ x Claude Aureau) x Velvet Envoy’.

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog  1951(Introductory in US) “A tall and stately beautywhose form is decked in rich brown velvet and taffeta.The crisp brown standards are a lighter brown than the falls, whose rich deep velvetliness is almost a walnut shade. An intense gold beard like a candle flame gives live to the whole flower.” ” 7.50
