From AIS Bulletin #141, April 1956. Introducing CLAREMONT INDIAN (Lenz 1956) $4.00. This is a near red Innominata hybrid of lovely texture and size. Graceful stalks 12-15 inches tall. Stock very limited. Lyon Iris Garden.
"The first "red" iris I ever saw was Dr. Lee Lenz's Claremont Indian. He produced it in the 50s, in a cross of innominata and probably douglasiana. It was the foundation for the reddish irises that appeared in Southern California, such as ' Pasadena Indian' and ' Native Princess' by George Stambach.
