From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: CARNTON (Wills 1955) M. L. This flower is a blend with the color effect of a red, deeper colored than most blends, but bright for a red. This iris adds a brilliant note that stands out in a garden picture. The predominant color is Cardinal Red (822/1) well infused with copper and in the sunlight the flowers glow and glisten with a brilliant sheen. The firm standards are blended red and copper, and the flaring falls are red with a suffusion of reddish copper around the full orange beard. Late flowering with firm substanced flowers on widely branched sturdy stalks, it plays an important part in giving us much needed color that prolongs the blooming season of the bearded iris. 39 in. $20.00.
