| 'Maya' (Washington, 1934) is an outstanding iris. Its flowers, carried to the height of forty inches, have tall domed standards of strawberry-red; falls are velvety and of the same tone as the standards, but with a subtle blending of coffee· and gold at the throat. The styles are orange and strawberry-red and it has a brilliant orange beard. The stalk is splendidly branched. ----Mabel Carey Tobie p58 AIS Bulletin #59 October 1935 Iris notes on Mrs. Thomas Nesmith's collection.
