■(TB) 'Apricot'

1938, Kleinsorge

'Apricot' (Rudolph Kleinsorge, R. 1938) TB, 36", Midseason bloom, Color Class Y7M. Golden apricot self. 'Far West' x 'Rameses'. Cooley 1938.

See below:


From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1938: "The first iris we have ever known to fully justify such a name. A seedling of Far West, itself a milestone in blended loveliness, this new introduction is solidly colored throughout . . . a uniform golden apricot self. The individual flowers are of medium to large size, with a slight fluting and ruffling in both standards and falls. Height about three feet. One could hardly imagine such color possible in an iris, when seen across the garden, at close range, or under artificial light indoors. Each $12.00."
Sold from the following catalogs: Cooley's 1938; Tell 1947.
