From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: GIANT ROSE (Schreiner '59) ML-40". Nowhere else in the world will you find an Iris equal to Giant Rose in size. This is a Ripley Believe-It-or-Not Iris. The dimensions are so incredible that I almost hesitate to mention them for fear people will say that Iris just can't be that big, but several flowers have been measured that actually ran from 11 to 11-1/2 inches from top to bottom! Absolutely certain to be a conversation piece. Standards bright orchid pink, falls vibrant fuchsia-rose. These huge flowers have a starchy substance, a jaunty classic form, considerable ruffling and a sparkling sheen. The stems are an inch thick and have superb candelabrum branching. Be among first to display this marvel of Iris world. Plant Patent No. 2067. HM'61 (Pathfinder X Opal Beauty). $6.00 each.
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1963: GIANT ROSE (Schr. '59) M.L. 40 in. (Pathfinder x Opal Beauty). The name describes it. If you live where you can't grow the giant Redwoods, but would like to, then try this. It's the giant of the iris world. Furthermore, it's mighty nice too, in spite of its brash size; so if you have a few square feet of garden air to spare, try it. Patent No. 2067. H.M. 1961. 6.00.
