INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1968 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: The coruscating, ever fugitive hues of autumn reflect the color of this remarkable precisely formed, self colored iris in variable shades of soft russet and deeper bronze. An extremely thick petal texture contributes to the long lasting quality of this fine seedling from Brass Accents. Blooms are of extra fine form and petals are copiously full. Sturdy stems with 3 branches. An exceedingly handsome new brown blend.
