References:

From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1944: "Coppery gold standards and falls of solid chestnut-brown without any red or even near red. A very late iris that brings something new into the variegata field. There is such a contrast to the standards and falls, the latter decidedly rounded and uniformly brown without haft markings, that it commands immediate attention in the garden. Very tall, almost four feet, with extra fine branching and a wealth of large flowers." (sldg #245 x E. B. Williamson). Honorable Mention 1945.
From Carl Salbach catalog 1949: GYPSY (Kleinsorge). An outstanding new iris in shades of copper and brown that is much admired by our garden visitors. Standards are coppery gold and falls deep chestnut brown without any other markings. Good size blooms held on 36" well branched stems. Rich and harmonious color combination. Late mid-season. $2.00; 3 for $5.00.
