Historic

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalogue for 1947: “Outstanding and different. The brightness of this flower makes it outstanding from the colour standpoint alone. A vivid, most brilliant smooth deep orange. Without question the finest orange iris we have. The flowers are large, wide petalled, classically formed and of very heavy substance. A brilliant piece of colouring. One of the outstanding iris.”
