■(TB) 'Karen By Morrison'

1924, Morisson

'Karen' (Benjamin Yeo Morrison, 1924) Since this Iris was declared obsolete in the 1939 checklist its name was later reused as 'Karen' and should not be confused with the later iris. In the 1939 checklist it was listed as a TB. Color code S9L which was probably a red-toned blend, bitone. Better descriptions will be found in old catalogs. Just because it was believed to no longer exist in 1939 does not mean there might have been plant still out there. It had been offered in Mt.(probably Mount Airy Iris Garden) 1924, Sturtevants 1924 and Sheets 1928. It was said to have a Honey Locust fragrance.
