From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1964: FIREBRIGHT (Craig '54) M·30". Has given us almost 90% re·bloom thru Nov. & Dec. An amazing deep red of an intensity not before seen in Iris. Coloring is smooth & rich; further adorned with a dazzling violet blaze. A thing of beauty & a joy to behold. Extremely heavy seed-setter; almost every pollinated flower sets a pod-and what is more, yields wonderfully brilliant offspring. Reg. $3.00; on $10 order $2.25; on $25 order $1.95.
