| From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing MARQUESAN SUNSET (1973) B-268. L. 28". Tall $25.00. Sib. to LOUISE WATTS. Whereas Louise Watts is a lavender and bronze blend, this is a red and bronze blend. The overall effect in the garden is reddish-but it has a great deal of bronze in its makeup, including a deep brown border on the falls. Has "s" curved stem, three branches and terminal; the flowers are in good proportion to the height of the stem, with excellent substance, flaring falls and closed standards. The flowers are very ruffled and full. This iris blooms later than most of the other tall bearded in my garden, and is different from any others I have seen. If you like LOUISE WATTS, I think you will like this too. Clarence Blocher.
