From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: PACEMAKER. (Lapham, 1950). E. M. 36 in. A very nicely formed new red Iris. A self that is smooth and velvety. We consider it the finest red we have seen with good branching, a tall, sturdy stem which is better in height and branching than most of the brighter reds. These are three and at times four branches per stem. A rich beard completes the even harmony of this splendid new red. H. M. 1950. $3.00.
"Pacemaker grew well for me, sending up three bloom stalks on a one-year plant. It was well branched, and smoother at the haft than Christabel, Red Gleam, and the rest; but it was neither large nor tall, and was much darker than pictured, and not so red. In Mr. Barker's garden it was shorter than in mine, and was decidedly less red than several of the Lapham seedlings he had." [John Dolman, Jr. (Pennsylvania), “From Aldan to Walden and Points North, Varieties Noted in 1951,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 15.]
