From Schreiners Iris catalog, 1937: INDIAN HILLS. A second seedling of Dr. Grant's which we offer is this worthy production, Indian Hills. It has a color which we need and which hybridizers, heretofore, have seemed unable to obtain in a free-growing plant. This variety is ideal in this respect, being both vigorous and prolific. Indian Hills is a rich,clear purple of extra large size and opulent oval form. The clear, lustrous color is magnificent in the clump, being just what landscape artists have long sought in a large-flowered variety. This iris is practically a self-color with a white beard shading to rich orange. It is distinctively fragrant. We consider Indian Hills fully the equal of our other introductions of this season, but because we have a better stock we are able to offer it at a price exceptionally moderate for so fine a variety. This iris is 36 inches tall and is also well branched. Price, each $10.00.
