From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: ETHIOP QUEEN (Schreiner). There have been quite a number of new darktoned varieties introduced recently, and each has its coterie of boosters. To date, however, we have heard of no concert of praise for Ethiop Queen, but we feel that it is highly probable that when it is distributed and seen in various sections of the country, Ethiop Queen will be easily recognizable as the best of its type. At any rate, it is an outstanding iris, completely distinct. In addition to being a very tall iris of good form and habit, Ethiop Queen is the only hardy "black" iris. Not completely black, of course, but the standards are deepest royal blue, with the falls actually rich, glistening velvety black. 40-inch. Mid-season. $10.00.
