INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1960 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Progress among the reds has been slow. But here is a mahogany-crimson that excels all other reds in velvetiness. It has a touch of ruffling also, not heretofore seen in reds. Notice the broad, quiet haft and golden beard, the glistening plushy sheen. A truly luxurious foreground Iris that will be appreciated by connoisseurs of form and style.
