Mid season. 37" Fragrant.
"A bright reddish brown with a golden flow, closer inspection reveals standards with a flush of faded rose. Antique gold edging on falls of henna. Nicely ruffled with a sweet fragrance. The beards are gold, tipped orange. American Iris Society Honorable Mention '90; Award of Merit '92."
Cooley's Iris Garden note.
