| ORANGE PUNCH (Greenwood '79), unfortunately, is one of those plants that didn't do well but did provide an exciting flower which was extremely ruffled. Standards are an orange-buff blend; falls are orange with red beards. Next year this should be a dazzler! [F. G. Stephenson, (VA), “1980 Iris Season Reviewed in Virginia”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 239 (October 1980): 43.]
