From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1958: DARIEN 24-52 (Wills 1956) M. Lustrous and gay this iris is aglow with life and color and is a distinct innovation in this class. It is an absolute self of gleaming Spanish Orange (010/2) with firm highly domed standards and heavy substanced flaring falls, made even more brilliant by the rich orange yellow beard. The symmetry of form and smooth finish add to the fascination of this sturdy well branched iris. It is hardy both in the north and south. Fort Ticonderoga x General Patton. 38 in. $10.00.
