From AIS Bulletin #173, April 1964. Introducing PRAIRIE BLAZE (Jim Marsh) M. 25-30 in. $20.00 net. Sdlg. 58-09 (Hall pk. sdlg. X Fay sdlg: (sib. to Native Dancer x Mary Randall). Primarily being offered as a breeder's iris for it does excel in that department. A very bright orange self of perfect form and color with a coral beard. The stem is short, rather bunched, and the plant a slow increaser. Very showy in the garden. H. C. '62. Moldovann's Gardens.
PRAIRIE BLAZE (Marsh '64), true to its name, was a blaze of color in many gardens. This is probably the deepest orange iris now on the market, a fine border type, with beautifully ruffled and finished flowers, and stalks around 28 inches tall with flowers sometimes bunched at the top. We had the pleasure of seeing some of its seedlings in the Jim Marsh garden and can vouch for the excellent quality. It is a must for the iris hybridizer especially and a conversation piece for the flower lover. [Roberts, Earl (1964). Taped Commentary on Fay Garden, American Iris Society Bulletin 174(July 1964), 49.]
