From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: REDWOOD (Kleinsorge 1939)- (Rebellion x Treasure Island) - This means 1/4 each, Yakima, Burning Bronze, Jean Cayeux, and 1/8 each, Purissima and Dolly Madison. Our selection as the very finest new seedling in Dr.Kleinsorge's garden last year, Redwood is a break to an entirely new color in iris. It is reminiscent of the old Rose Ash gladiolus, and so aptly described by the term "rose ash" that we would have given it that name had it not been taken. It is a "smoky" red of great character - a worthy new iris that will hold its own in any company. Large, very tall, perfectly branched, and ideal in habit in every way. See picture for form of flower. Perhaps the only way to depict the rare beauty in the color of Redwood is to picture the result of a rich red or carmine water-color paint softened by a light touch of chocolate. Being the first live, rich and colorful "smoky" iris offered, it is a variety that will be in great demand. Late. Mid-season. 42-inch. $15.00.
