Full Description

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 ┬áthe 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’.
