From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “A tall and huge golden flame-salmon blend, almost a red, but with so much of the gold influence in it that it is not really a red Iris. You have seen the sun look much like this just before it sinks over the horizon. Both standards and falls are extra large and the haft and beard are bright golden yellow. A most impressive flower, blooming early on widely branched stalks reaching 42 inches. Winner of the President’s Cup at the AIS convention in 1949.”
From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1956: “Brilliant blend of flame red and coppery salmon. Haft and beard are bright golden yellow. The large impressive flowers bloom early on widely branched stalks.”
