COMRADE (C. P. Connell 1942) M. "The name is given to this iris as a dedication to my comrades Chancellor Kirkland, and Mr. Washington. These two gentlemen I knew from the time of my childhood, and common interests made us comrades in a very true sense." The above was written by Mr. Connell, and the iris is a fitting tribute to their memory. A strong and sturdy iris of bright dusty rose with a strong suffusion of gold showing through from the underside and center of the flower. According to Ridgway, the standards are a blending of gold and Hellebore red. The falls have a background of gold that suffuses through deep Hellebore red with a decided band of Roods brown extending around the edge of the falls and up to the burnt Sienna markings of the throat. There is an elusive flush of blue just below the rich yellow beard. The flowers are large with form and substance showing Dominion parentage. A luminous iris with subtly blended colors. Strong sturdy stalks with four branches and terminal. Viola fragrance. 38 in. $15.00. [Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts].
