See below:



From Quality Gardens catalog 1930: NUMA RUMESTAN (Numa Rumestan) (Cayeux 1928) L. 36". This is an intensely red iris, a deep rich red, a perfect self color, with the standards and falls equally red. It has a stout and well branched stem. Both the standards and the falls are intensely frilled. The flowers are not as large as Dauntless but it is a more uniform, intensely red color. We cannot recommend this Iris too highly to our customers. It will create a sensation when it is better known. No delivery until August 15, 1930. $20.00.
Cayeux et Le Clerc catalog 1930, p. 8.
Bulletin de la Société Nationale d'Horticulture de France, 1934, 6e série, Tome I, p. 138.
