From Schreiner’s catalog, 1962: RUBY MINE (Schreiner 1962) ML. 40". The big feature about this iris is the fact that it is one of the extremely few dark red iris (as distinguished from the merely red) which do not fade or bleach in the sun. Indeed, it is exceptionally weather and sun resistant in every respect. In tone a rich ox-blood to garnet-ruby red with large, full flowers on tall, very well branched stems. Its garnet-ruby tones have the richness of old mahogany. A larger flower than most red iris, nicely branched and a vigorous grower. Much darker than Fire Magic with which it does not compete. A nice arrangement of this clone by Carl Starker is illustrated on this page. Sdlg. R 417-A. HC 1961. $20.00.
