Awaiting original catalog description.
". . . and RAIN OR SHINE, a Punchline type with more brilliant coloring than that variety. One might describe it as tan and gold. The standards are open, but do not flop." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 208 (January 1973): 13.]
