INTERESTING INFO:
From the 2013 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: There have been many "Downtown Browns" in our culture. Who's to say which one is the baddest cat in town? This Downtown Brown is a favorite of the class of 2013. It grabs you. Huge flowers, and its less common color scheme initially attract. Sealing the deal are the two shows it puts on, both attractive: on first bloom brown falls and buff-yellow standards appear. Stage 2, a few days later, after fading - is more attractive, the falls lightening off to gold. Downtown Brown has 42" stalks and 8 flowers per stem.
