From Carl Salbach catalog, 1935: SUNTAN (Mitchell 1935). "A flower of distinction." A remarkably different iris of medium size, that makes one of the very finest garden clumps imaginable-perhaps the finest of all recent introductions for that purpose. Standards deep glistening gold, and beard of orange. Falls rich brown, the shade of a well tanned swimmer's back. The combination of bright yellow standards and bronze falls gives the flower the attractiveness of a beautiful, well sunned bathing girl. $10.00.
