From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1929: Cinnabar (Williamson No. 208, 1928). (Seedling No. 90, small Variegata blend, X ?). Tall Bearded. Height 42 inches, stalk well branched, 8 flowers. Flowers medium to large, 4 inches high and 4 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; very broadly obovate; Violet Purple shading to copper at claw, Maroon veined. Falls flaring; broadly wedge shaped; Cotinga Purple, haft pale light yellowish at the extreme base, with Maroon veining; beard yellow. Style branches yellow, center and crests Pale Amparo Purple. General effect of flower, in mass a rich dark red of one tone, but a bicolor, due to the heavy velvety falls. This variety flowered first in 1923. We believe it will prove very popular with those who like the darker varieties. $8.00.
CINNABAR. Bicolor. S9D. Williamson 1928. Brief. Branched below center; S. amethyst violet; F. velvety prune purple the haft blurred with morocco red; 40 in. Details. S. arched, rounded at tips; F. drooping to straight hanging, circular; beard projecting, yellow tipt. [R. S. Sturtevant, "Descriptions of Varieties, Part VI, A.I.S. Bulletin 53 (October 1934): 27.
 
From Quality Gardens catalog 1930: CINNABAR (Williamson 1928) M. 42" Stalk well branched, flowers large. S. violet purple; F. cotinga purple, very velvety. The general effect is a rich dark red, of one color, but owing to the extreme velvety quality of the falls, it looks like a bicolor. Some keen iris experts are very enthusiastic about this and think it is the finest flower which Williamson ever introduced. We strongly recommend it. $6.00.
