| From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing Ponderosa (Denver Mint X Moon River). A very large bloom with rosy-brown standards and spreading falls of plum-brown. Multi-budded with serrated edge that makes for a bonanza of an iris. $25.00. Bay View Gardens.
| PONDEROSA is a blend of brown and violet in light shades that has two illustrious parents which passed along branching, substance, and vigor to it. Different, exciting, and very ruffled. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 14.]
