| From AIS Bulletin #181 April 1966. Introducing MULBERRY WINE (Moldovan) M. 29-30 in, $25.00. (Regal Ruffling X Orchid Jewel). Extremely ruffled and fluted blend of bright mulberry and violet. H.C. '64 and '65. Moldovan's Gardens.
| MULBERRY WINE had difficulty with getting the flowers out of the foliage the first few years it was grown here, but the past two it has had taller stalks which eliminated that problem. Its different mulberry coloring with a white beard attracts much attention, especially since the flowers are so well formed. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 12.]
| MULBERRY WINE (Moldovan) - Also a very good parent, is a heavily ruffled variety. The color is its name. Clean at the hafts, which is difficult in this color range. [Perry Dyer, “A Tall bearded Collection for the Beginner”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 237 (April 1980): 36.]
