We had the pleasure of introducing this novelty last season, and again offer it as one of the premier American seedlings of Dominion ancestry. The rich and subtle blending of deep brown and bronze on a dull purple ground is not comparable to any other iris, the resulting effect being quite distinct in its air of antiquity, like some old wood carving or a rare piece of ancient bronze. Having bloomed it last season, Mr. F. X. Schreiner had this to say: "Klamath bloomed finely. Its qualities are especially form, poise, substance held without flopping for the entire life of the blossom--three days. I am, of course, prejudiced a little against the $50 iris in general, but THIS HAS MERITED IT MORE NEARLY THAN THE OTHERS." Extra fine, extra large rhizomes, $40.00 each; three at $35.00 each.

From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: KLAMATH (Kleinsorge 1929) M. 40". An Ambassadeur X Titan Seedling, with all the good qualities of its Dominion parent, and the rich coloring intensified, of Ambassadeur. The standards are bronze tinted violet, and the falls are a deep prune purple paling at the edge to the bronze tone of the standards. Perfect form and heavy substance. A fine new offering. $40.00.
