From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1957: HOME FIRES (Lapham # 10-53) (Town Talk x First Mate) We recommend this new introduction as a new color in "red" Iris. The standards are silky chestnut red, the falls are the same rich color, a little deeper and velvety. The beards are the same fine color. By the M.&P. color chart, it is a Domingo Brown flushed red. Flowers are of good size, excellent form and substance. 30 inches. Late. An Iris so rich, silky and glowing, it can't be passed without admiration. $15.00.
