Char-Maize (Lyon '49) - "This is one iris that could be rated 100%. Has height, perfect form, heavy substance, perfect branching plus a color that is different, and does not melt in our hot sun, nor does it fade." [“Region 15, Varietal Comments,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 134 (July 1954): 71.]
