INTERESTING INFO:
From the American Iris Society Bulletin for July 1974, A Median Review by Joe Gatty: A rightly named tailored SDB, one done in shades of brown (orange-brown standards, dark brown falls). It is a profuse bloomer that adds a new color note to the early iris garden.

From the 1976 Melrose Gardens Catalog: Pretty, round petaled brown bitone.
