From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog 1953: “Watchfire was our choice from a whole series of blends characterized by their splendid height and better than usual branching. We believe that the breeders specializing in the development of blends will be intensely interested when they behold the ramrod stiff, well branched stems. A copper with a red cast whose brilliant colors are carried aloft and send their beams across the garden attracting and holding one’s attention. A wonderful clump.”
Color Class-R6M. ‘Autumn Splendour’ x ‘Copper Rose’.
