From Fairmount Gardens catalog for 1956: “Rich gleaming Cedar Wood Brown that glows and glistens in the sunlight best describes this iris. The flowers are finely formed with broad highly domed standards and widely flaring falls. It has a firmness and smoothness of texture that is seldom found in a brown iris for so many of them have pronounced venations and often lack sun resistance. I have tested this iris in my garden and thoroughly agree with the comments from England. “A clump that was growing in the Randall garden was a most impressive sight and was described as an advance development near perfection.”
Tall, well branched with many flowers it is a handsome and distinctive iris, and is most impressive on the show bench. Tarn Hows has been selected for trial at Wisley.”
