| Awaiting original catalog description.
| Red-black irises in the tradition of 'EDENITE' continue to get better. STUDY IN BLACK barely missed an AM this year. The smooth coloring, three open blooms, and sturdy stalks with fine branching, will probably win that award for it next year. The flowers are lightly ruffled and heavily substanced.
