From AIS Bulletin #165, April 1962. Introducing BURNING BRAND (Whiting 1962) #6011, H. C. 1961. A new bright brick-red iris with solid color and smooth hafts. Plants vigorous and hardy. Very prolific and free blooming. No catalog. $15.00. Maple Valley.
From The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 167 (October 1962): 89. BURNING BRAND (Whiting 1962). We do not know what color to call this fine new iris. It is brick red according to the color chart, and while we can't argue with that, our own description probably would be a hot orange-brown. The flowers are big and of excellent substance and form. It would seem that this would certainly be a help in breeding for hot reds. Ralph and Helen Lewis, “Irises From North Carolina’s Coastal Plains to the Foot of Pikes Peak.”
