From Carl Salbach catalog, 1932: RONDA. We have a very possessive feeling for this rich red iris because we saw it first in Mr. Mitchell's ga~den the year he was in Europe. It bloomed far down in the swale yet the first flower caught our eyes and we could hardly get down there fast enough to see the brilliant newcomer. It is the brightest red we have ever seen, beautifully proportioned, of heavy texture and of medium height. Makes a colorful clump for the middle of the border. It also rates high as an individual stalk. 30 in. $7.50.
From Carl Salbach catalog, 1938: RONDA. So vividly colored that it shines clear across the garden. A low growing iris, making it ideal for borders, etc. - and what a glowing, "different" parking bed it would make. Heavy texture and beautifully proportioned. Color tones very much like those shown in color picture of Rubeo. Late. 24-inch. 35c; 3 for 75c.
