From AIS Bulletin #189, April 1968 Introducing MOHAWK TRAIL (L. Markham) Sdlg. 61-9G2. INCA CHIEF X WAR PAINT. TB. 33". ML. This rich golden brown iris is outstanding for its form, substance and finish. Tightly closed stands are very ruffled, and ruffled falls flare gracefully. Blooms are heavysubstanced, non-burning, and have a satiny sheen. Infusions of copper make them seem to change color with the light. Has 2 or 3 short branches and terminal. Placement is excellent and S-curved stem avoids crowding. There are 7 to 9 buds. Plants are of moderate size and produce an average 2 or 3 increase yearly, more under ideal conditions. Fairly fertile both ways and producing excellent seedlings. HC (9 votes) and McKee Medal 1965. $25.00 NET. The Markham Garden.
