Awaiting original catalog description
From Cooley's Gardens catalog, 1959: A new red, with a name in keeping with the impression it creates in the garden! Broad falls of brilliant color and heavy substance, slightly waved; it owes its fine form to CORDOVAN, one of its parents.
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1963: BANG (Craig '55) M.L. 38 in. Savage x (ordovan x Molten). A large, ruffled bitone. Standards are cedar red and the falls a rich India red. A bit difficult to grow here and in some other areas but certainly worthwhile for it is a top notch red. A.M. 1960 2.00.
A good red with more substance than most reds. It is well branched and always a good performer for us. Hildenbrandt, Lester (1965). Irises for a Beginner, American Iris Society Bulletin, 177 (April 1965) 27.
