| From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: BRIARWOOD PUNCH. (Reg. 1949.) This seedling of Cajun Joyeuse is a blend giving the effect of daphne red (Ridgway) with an undertone of gold, moss pink veining. The 5½-inch flowers are displayed on a 30-inchstem. The rhizome does not grow in such strides as do most of these iris, thus affording a more compact clump. The name comes from the punch made of wild fruit juices served at Briarwood, the home of Miss Caroline Dormon and Mrs. Virginia D. Miller. Because it is a good multiplier, it is available at the low introduction price. $5.00.
