From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing CREOLE FLAME Sdlg. LW-1-7L LA. 34". M. RL This Ozark bred La. iris is a hot flaming velvety red. To my eyes it is about two shades darker than cardinal red. It shows no brown, purple or orange in its makeup and has the velvety finish that is scarce in La. irises. The form is flat. It would suit me better if the petals were a little wider. All other features are excellent. (Delta King X unknown). $20.00. Crooked Creek Iris Gardens.
