INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1960 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: For a red with an orangey cast a red with unusual carrying power in the garden we recommend or new Indian red Tillamook (named for an Oregon Indian tribe). Several persons have told us they consider this the reddest Iris they have seen, but interpretations of redness differ, depending on preference for the orange or crimson approach. In any case, Tillamook represents progress toward redness and we believe that with its fine habits and branching it will prove a popular garden Iris.
