From Schreiner’s Iris catalog, 1948: CHARLIE GERSDORFF (Lapham 1948) M. 38". Here is a two-toned fiery orange-red with a bright beard.The warm orange cast standards suggest an approach to variegate but the red tones in the standards place it as a heavily blended red . The falls are a brilliant nopal-red with a blending influence of carmine in the throat. Excellent garden effect, good stalks. A cross of Mr. Lapham's Red Gleam crossed with Paul Cook's Flamely, it is a happy combination and blending of these two individual lines of red Iris. $10.00.
