From National iris Gardens catalog for 1933: “Beautiful blending of amber, buff, yellow, violet, and rose.”
From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “Zaharcon [sic] An unusual blend of soft amber, buff, yellow; fawn and pale violet with a strong suff(u)sion of rose. Strong and vigorous grower.”
Silver Gilt Medal IS(E) 1927.
Note: Variation in the bloom on the two photos of Zaharoon below. Both from same stock. East Coast bloom (LM – Presby) has uneven color, blotches and ‘wrinkly’ petals while the West Coast bloom (MU) is smooth in color and petals, with great form, showing no blotchiness or wrinkles. A much lovelier flower. Zaharoon did not like the East Coast where it languished and died about two years later.
