From AIS Bulletin #201 April 1971 Introducing SCARLET BAND (1971) B-238 (Sorcerer's Apprentice X Sea of Stars. $35.00. This is a sib to LOUISE WATTS, and generally I regard a second introduction from the same cross with some suspicion. However, this flower has many differences-and I feel it is worthy of introduction. It is 32" tall. The flowers are not quite as large as its sib, but have the same heavy substance. It is a reddish blend, and has a most beautiful deep red border on the falls-about 3/8" wide. All in all it is quite striking, and I know of no other iris like it. Has eight or nine buds per stem; very nicely branched with a graceful "S" curved stem. Blocher.
