LEGEND (Wareham 1932) 38". A velvety claret crimson self with a brilliant gold beard which sets off the rich beauty of the flower effectively. $.65. [1937 Quality Gardens catalog, Freeport, IL]
Legend: (Wareham). This crimson purple iris should be excellent for hybridizing as it has everything useful. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]
From Milliken iris Garden catalog, 1940: LEGEND (Wareham) This outstanding variety has not received the attention it so justly deserves. The flowers are indeed striking with their falls of rich deep claret, seemingly of pure velvet, and their standards of deep blue, slightly bronzed. A strong grower with large flowers on 3-1/2 foot stems and a midseason to late bloomer. 3Sc; 3 for 7Sc.
