From Carl Salbach catalog, 1932: BRONZE BEACON (Salbach 1932). This fine new bronze carries a myriad of rich lustrous flowers on each of its low-branching, 50-inch stalks. The flowers are 6 inches wide by 5 inches tall, of splendid texture which withstands both heat and rain. The velvety Indian lake falls, brown style branches and old gold haft,tipped by the glowing golden bronze standards give the beacon-like attributes to this big iris. It is extremely late and its long blooming period extends the iris season at least a couple of weeks. It is a fine seed bearer. $10.00.
