Awaiting original catalog description
Reddish purple self, slight fragrance. 'Amas' X ( Iris pumila * X ...) *Possibly Iris lutescens , McDade 1933. References; McDade 1933; National 1933; Ida Mary Pattison, Quality Gardens 1933; 1939; Flower Grower 21: 2, 100. March 1934 with illustration;Honorable Mention AIS 1936; Bulletin of The American Iris Society 63: 64, October 1936; Award of Merit AIS 1937; Bulletin of the American Iris Society 66: 87. Sep 1937.
From the Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "Deep flourite purple self, with very rich falls. The opening flower is almost black, and the heavy blue beard tends to increase the depth of color. This is the leading fall-blooming iris in commerce today, because it increases very fast, is most reliable in flowering habit, and is one of the most beautiful irises in the garden regardless of its added value as a rebloomer."
