Tompkins, R&I 1967
Available - not endangered
TB 44″ M-L
From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog for 1968: “An enormous flower with broad, ruffled petals, this has perfectly domed standards and huge, round, flatly flaring, horizontal falls. It is an electrifying, shockingly bright Iris of flaming Orange red with a smooth copper blending of fiery Copper red throughout and is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding red blends we have grown. Tall, strong, widely branched stalks show the massive flowers to perfection and this placement coupled with the elegant ruffling, gives the huge flowers a regal grace not often associated with Iris of this size.”
