Awaiting original catalog description.
Why absolute renown has never come to DERRING-DO (Warburton '58), I cannot explain! This is a fine, fine iris. A bicolor, with dark violet standards and dark red-violet falls edged dark violet. It makes some of the newer SDBs of similar coloring fade away. [Carol Ramsey, “Standard Dwarfs---1969,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 194 (July 1969): 68.]
