From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing SEEING RED. 36". After years of red breeding we had to make this beautifully ruffled maroon available to you. $35.00. Schortman's Iris Garden.
SEEING RED (Schortman '68). A near-perfect approach to red. Out of Tall Chief, it has height, branching and smoothness going for it. Most satisfactory, and a good pod parent. [Tell Muhlestein, “Twenty-five Irises That Have Performed Well for Me,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 49.]
