From AIS Bulletin #232 Winter 1979 Introducing BURGUNDY BROWN (1979). 36", EM, #71-4D. $25.00. An unusual brown blend and plicata creation, giving a most unusual approach to a brown-chocolate iris. The standards are beautifully ruffled and arched. A vibrant brown with a light violet blush. The falls are ruffled and semi-flaring, having a narrow 3/8" plicata rim and throat of the same color. Ground color is a clear, medium yellow. A greyed orange beard ending in a fine chocolate line extends through a white signal patch. Good branching, generous bloomstalks and blooms are good points of this clean, crisp specimen. Gibson Iris Garden.
Reported Rebloom in: CA, OR, Netherlands USDA Zone 9 [The 2012 Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, p. 31]
From Nicky Allenz, New Zealand: My description on Burgundy Brown: Standards: reasonably dark brown with slight violet blush with subdued yellow ground, Falls: Bright yellow ground with 3/8" brown plicata edges (same colour as standards). White thumbprints, yellow beards, tipped in brown, giving the beards a 'peppered' look on close inspection. Have ruffled edged falls. A singular, dark Purple line, from end of each beard down through the middle of each fall, almost reaching the end of its fall. Bloom time in NZ - October. 2013-10-18.
