(TB) 'Royanah'

1960, Wills

'Royanah' (Jesse Wills, R. 1960). Seedling# 65-59. TB, 35" (89 cm), Midseason bloom. Color Class-R1L, Light rose-red self. 'Right Royal' X (('E. B. Williamson' x 'Spring Chimes') x ('Prairie Sunset' x 'Hoosier Sunrise')).

ROYANAH, which comes from RIGHT ROYAL crossed by an old pink blend of mine, is the only one that has not been introduced. It is not as tall or as well branched as the others, though it grows well. It probably has, however, the loveliest flower of the four. They are bright rose-red, very smooth, flaring and ruffled in a lovely and unusual way. This ruffling, incidentally, appears in warm weather but is not present in cold, damp weather, when the flower is too tailored. All of the above 'Donelson', 'Orenda', 'King's Mountain', 'Royanah']have a large number of buds. [Jesse E. Wills, “Notes on the 1962 Iris Season,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 166 (July 1962): 23.]
