| From Schreiner’s catalog, 1963: ORANGE JADE (Charles Wise 1963) M. 36". $20.00. Visitors from the Presby Memorial Garden in New Jersey have been extolling a "wonderful real orange." Seen also in Paul Cook's Bluffton, Indiana, garden as a guest iris, the same seedling from Charles Wise drew "raves." A kodacolor at hand shows an iris of excellent classic flaring form of a uniform deep golden orange hue. This is the nearest to true orange of any iris produced to date. It may well prove the "sleeper" among our 1963 introductions. We hope to have a picture next year.
| ORANGE JADE (Wise '63). Seedling X On Stage. We think this is the closest approach to orange we have ever seen. The form and substance are excellent, height is moderate, performance is very satisfactory. We have watched and admired this iris for three years.
