From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: RED VELVET (Kleinsorge 1939) - ((King Tut) x (Purissima x Dolly Madison)) x ((Pioneer x Bruno) x (Pioneer x Bruno) ) - The reddest ofall the big reds we have seen and atthe same time a very rich, velvety iris. Large, perfectly branched, and ideal in form and habit in every way, it is a magnificent new creation - a variety that will be a top-notcher for many years to come. Heavy substance, and stands up well. Remarkable as much for its bold form and fine domed standards as for its great advance in color, Red Velvet is definitely a most worthy, showy iris. Completely distinct from any other reds - a real blue ribbon iris. Well branched, large blooms. Standards live Van Dyke red, suffused redder at the edges; falls velvety carmine to ox-blood red. See color picture, page 16. Late. Mid-season. 36-inch. $20.00.
