From Carl Salbach catalog 1937: OURAY (Thomas-Thorup 1937.) Although neither large or tall, this iris is nevertheless striking because of its unusual color tone - gleaming brownish red - the brightest red iris we have seen. Had this iris the size of some of the other new red-toned varieties, it would unquestionably merit as high a price as we have ever placed on any iris. Mid-season. 28-inch. We are happy to have acquired part of the stock of this brilliant variety, enabling us to introduce it at $5.00.
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1942: OURAY (Thomas-Thorup 1937) M. Neither large nor tall, this iris is outstanding because of its unusually rich but subdued ruby red color. Per. R. 85 1940. 29 in. $ .50
