From AIS Bulletin #216 January 1975 Introducing ANON. '74, M, 40". #47-0A. $25.00. This beautiful, fluted and ruffled amber-colored iris is a later development from the APRICOT BLAZE line. The 5"x6" blossoms are perfectly formed. The APRIL MELODY and SMOKE RINGS blood make the petals very broad as one would expect. Standards are semi-flaring and a carrot red self (Wilson 612/1), having a strong inward curving midrib, holding them in perfect alignment. Stylearms are of the same color. Fluted falls are an amber yellow, the outer rim fused a light brown, making it a plicata. Lemon yellow inner rim on white ground. Haft is garnet brown. All this is complimented with a pronounced tangerine beard. Vigorous grower; 3 branches and terminal; 10 buds. One of our most popular seedling. Gibson's Iris Garden.
