From Sunnyside Gardens catalog, 1945: PRIORITY — (Lapham, ’45). This is probably the first red fall blooming Iris. I saw it in Mr. Lapham’s garden last August, and we took a stalk of it to Chicago and showed it at the annual luncheon of Region 9. It is a rich, deep, almost pansy purple (quite red), from “M, A. Porter” x “Jerry.” Starts blooming late in September. A medium yellow-toned red, carrying nine blooms to the stalk. $5.00. ORIGINAL CATALOG DESCRIPTION.
