TURBO-FIRE (Leland 1961). A well-shaped and substanced flower of good size and excellent form. The color is unusually deep, though the standards are somewhat lighter than the almost black-red falls. Branching was fine. [Ralph and Helen Lewis, “Irises From North Carolina’s Coastal Plains to the Foot of Pikes Peak,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 167 (October 1962): 89.]
