(TB) 'Bronze Bell'

1957, Schreiner

'Bronze Bell' ( Robert Schreiner, R. 1955). Sdlg. L-300. TB, 36" (91 cm), Midseason late bloom. Color Class-YO1D, Rich, metallic copper-brown self. (Name transferred from earlier registration, not introduced.). 'Copper Medallion' X 'Inca Chief'. Schreiner 1957.

From Schreiner's Iris Lovers catalog for 1957: "From Copper Medallion x Inca Chief – two peak coppers of distinctly different types – comes this gorgeous development slated to take the Iris world by storm. We have never seen or grown anything to equal it in its color class. The color is startingly rich – just like a piece of highly polished copper or light bronze. A heavy metallic luster plays over its surface with a golden iridescence. A massive flower of splendid substance with superb form and exuberant ruffling, Bronze Bell is extra generous in the number of flowers borne on its stout stems. The noblest copper of them all, Bronze Bell with be the conversation piece par excellence for years to come."
