From Carl Salbach catalog 1936: Natoma (Salbach 1935). "A richer, glowing H.ameses." The more we see of this charming variety the better we like it. Definitely a very fine iris--one which unquestionably merits consideration among the very finest of recent introductions. If Natoma had been a giant in size, we would have automatically priced it at $25.00 each. It is a good sized flower on good sized stalks, but in as much as it is not one of the very largest, we introduced it at $ 10.00, and it now sells for 25% less than last year. Growth, form and habit similar to that fine Dykes Medal iris Rameses, but inheriting fine color values from its King Midas and Alta California parentage. Falls a blending of bronze and old rose, with standards of pinkish cinnamon. The complete effect is of glowing old rose-a flower that, like Eleanor Blue, wears well, thanks to its soft, warm coloring. Well branched. Late. 36-inch. $7.50.
