| From Schreiner’s catalog, 1969: MOLTEN EMBERS (Schreiner 1969) ML. 40" $25.00. Here is a large, ruffly, stately, fiery, umber red brown, heavily shot and influenced with bright copper and brown tones. There is a sultry, molten underglow reminding one of imprisoned, volcanic fire. The flashing facets of bright copper red reflect an aura of mystic glow to give this exotic, rare colored, ruddy iris a quality of uniqueness. An unexpected result from crossing a red iris with a brown iris! One of the most vigorous growing blends. Tall, strong, ramrod stiff stems. Seedling #W593-B. HC '68.
