References:

From Cooley's Gardens catalog 1943: "Gay and brilliant, a blended bi-color of buff golden and broad plush-like falls of glowing red brown. Now there are many irises in this color combination, but this one is not the ordinary variegata type that you might expect. In the first place, it is a perfectly gigantic flower, with the falls slightly waved at the edges. And there is a coppery orange suffusion about it that makes it appear more as a blend than a definite bi-color. This is another of the very latest varieties, extending the iris season after most others have passed by."
From Carl Salbach catalog 1944: MEXICO (Kleinsorge 1943). Attractive b!g hi-color with golden standards and broad falls of glowing red brown. Falls are somewhat waved. Standards rather tall and well closed. Blooms of heavy substance on tall, nicely-branched flower stalks. Therefore reminds one of a Mexican straw hat. Good grower. Late. 40". $7.50.
