■(TB) 'Rose Amethyst'

1957, Kleinsorge

'Rose Amethyst' (Rudolph E. Kleinsorge, R. 1957). Seedling# 385. TB, 36" (91 cm), Late bloom. Plum color, brown suffusion; falls plum, haft brown, violet patch at end of brown beard. Seedling# 357B x seedling: (seedling# 332 x seedling# 305A). Cooley 1957.

From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1957: "The picture on the opposite page does not do justice to this new plum-colored iris with the rosy glow and soft brown hafts. Unique in color, the flowers large and perfectly formed; we are quite sure that you will find it a lovely garden subject and one that will attract immediate attention in any collection of the very finest. Not a gay color but rather one of subtle richness. Height 3 feet or over."
