From Longfield Iris Gardens catalog, 1928: Zingara (Williamson No. 9, 1928). Tall Bearded. Height 24 inches, well branched, 7 flowers. Flowers small, 2-1/2 inches high and 3 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; obovate; Deep Chrome; Maroon spotted at claw. Falls flaring; wedge shaped; underlying color same as standards; heavily overlaid and veined with Ox-blood Red; haft Deep Chrome, reticulated with Ox-blood Red; beard bright orange. Style branches same color as standards. General color effect a distinct orange tone, not approached by any other Variegata. Its low growing habit gives it value for edging purposes. It has been greatly admired in our gardens for many years, and has been widely distributed as Williamson No. 9. The name, suggested by Mr. Sam Burchfield, is that of Balkan Gypsies, who are partial to orange in their dress. 1.00.
