| 1927 catalog of A.E. Wohlert (Firm) gives: "Red Ridinghood (Koehler 1922) — The nearest approach to red in the Iris family, and for that reason it has a place in the Iris garden that no other variety can fill. S. attractive reddish-lavender. F. purplish solferinored, with mottlings of brown near the base. The backs of the petals are pinkish-lavender. Greatly admired wherever seen. 50 cents each."
