From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1952: NEW ORLEANS (Debaillon-Dormon). One of the showiest iris we have, a brilliant rose-pink, 8" flower span on a 30" to 36" stem. Won the Best Iris in the Show Award of the Soc. for La. Irises, 1945. $.75.
From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1949: NEW ORLEANS This lovely rose-pink flower, with a spread of at least eight inches, is probably one of the largest of all the Louisianas and many of our visitors thought it the most beautiful. There is no denying it, taken as a group or as a single flower, these beautiful iris from the swamps and bayous of the south, and which seem perfectly at home here with us, created a sensation in our gardens last spring. $5.00; 3 for $12.50.
