| From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1939: "Discovered last spring among the seedlings of Mr. DeForest. A positive self of rich wine red, without the purple influence and almost devoid of haft markings, the beard bronze-yellow. The owner valued this most highly and had accumulated several splendid clumps. We promptly bought the entire stock and now pass on to you this most excellent ruby red iris at a fraction of its potential introductory value. Tall, well branched, does not fade in hottest sun. Each $3.00; 3 for $8.00."
