From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing TANGERINE SUNSET (Marsh '72). 68-1. TB. 30". L-M. (Radiant Light X Ultrapoise) Very ruffled medium sized flowers with semiflared falls and closed standards. These beautiful deep orange flowers with tangerine shadings on all edges carry a strong red beard. The color does not fade in the sun as most oranges do. The stalk is strong and has never needed staking. It carries three nicely spaced branches and terminal that will give you ten flowers. It has blue-green foliage, is a good increaser, and is fertile both ways. HC '70. . $25.00. Marsh, Wild.
…TANGERINE SUNSET (Marsh, 1972), a bright but short rich orange with a deeper beard. This one looks its best in an established clump. [Dyer, Perry. “Roanoke 1974, and Points West.” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society. 221 (July 1974): 30.]
