| From Marx Gardens catalog, 1955: BATTLE CRY (Marx 1953) Each $2.50 A positive step nearer a real red iris. Standards are just a shade lighter than the falls. The color is strikingly contrasted by a large white center and yellow signals. Of most excellent habits, the 7 inch flowers are borne high above the leaves on 4½ to 5 foot sterns. The combined height and strong color offer you a most conspicuous subject for any part of the garden. Semi-double and one of the first to bloom.
