Here in the southern climate the standards do not hold up well. They are rather floppy. Aside from that, it is a lovely Historic iris!

This iris actually first showed up in existence in 1868, according to the 1939 AIS register/check list. Later (in 1898) it was listed again in more detail - where it gave credit to Barr as the hybridizer.

It received two A.M. awards. One in 1916, and one in 1917.
