See below:


From Schreiner's Iris catalog, 1948: AFAR (Lapham 1948) EM. 34". This sprightly orange sherbert toned pink is one of the new toned pinks with a color cast all its own . One of the highlights in the garden of that pink Iris specialist, Mr.Lapham. The flower can be spotted from afar so outstanding is its color. Fine sized blooms, branched stems, a flower of instant color appeal. A vigorous grower, we recommend it highly. $15.00.
From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: AFAR. Orange sherbet toned pink, a color all its own. Fair sized blooms, and 34 inches tall. From Mr. Lapham. Strong grower. 75c.
