INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1992 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Our premier red Iris! We've selected War Chief not only for its rich ruby color, but aso because of its incredible abundance of bloom. Tall strong stems produce four branches with 11-13 buds. Note also the bright yellow beards that add an extra sparkle.
