From Longfield Iris Farm catalog, 1926: GEO. J. TRIBOLET This is the magnificent deep coppery purple Iris which we have carried since 1921 as No. 145. If it has a fault, five years have not revealed it. The plant is of vigorous growth, with many flowers of finest form and largest size borne on splendidly proportioned stems forty inches tall. By Ridgway the standards are Nigrosin Violet; the falls a solid and velvety Blackish Red Purple while a coppery suffusion spreads throughout the entire flower. Beautiful as a single flower; as a single stalk of bloom; and as a flowering clump. We strongly recommend this very fine new Iris. Strong plants, prepaid, each - $5.00.
From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: GEORGE J. TRIBOLET (Williamson 1926). This magnificent new introduction well depicts the ideals of quality that Mr. Williamson is endeavoring to breed into his Irises--strong and vigorous growth, freedom of bloom, with form and substance rather than size in the flowers. S. Nigrosin-violet; F. a solid and velvety, blackish red-purple, with a coppery suffusion throughout the whole flower that is most effective. The blooms are medium to large in size, of finest form, and are borne freely on well-branched stalks 40 inches tall. A distinct and beautiful Iris when judged as a single flower, as a separate stalk of bloom, or as a flowering clump. $6.00 each.
