From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing CLARA'S BLACK (Rees). TB. 36". Mid-Season. ((Sable Night x Indiglow) X Black Swan). A worthy descendant of illustrious parents. By RHS chart, this iris is aconite violet, but what it really looks like in the garden is black plush-velvety in the falls, satiny in the standards. Distinction is given by an outstandingly beautiful greenish bronze beard. Net $25.00. Rees Iris Garden.
