It is unclear if this was formally introduced or not. It was officially registered in 1945 yet National Iris Gardens had no listing of it in that years catalog - they did list it in the 1947 edition.

| From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1947: "Tall dark maroon self. Like a rich brocade in a regal pattern of velvety deep maroon falls, softer silken standards, maroon tipped, golden style arms; beard and haft of gold. One of the last to bloom. Flowers are fragrant."
