References:

From Schreiner’s Iris catalog, 1950: WATCHFIRE (Stevens 1948) M. 38". Watchfire was our choice from a whole series oblends characterized by their splendid height and better than usual branching. We believe that the breeders specializing in the development of blends will be intensely interested when they behold the ramrod stiff, well branched stems. A copper with a red cast whose brilliant colors are carried aloft and send their beams across the garden attracting and holding one's attention. A wonderful clump. For a single flower see illustration on opposite page. $5.00.
