From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1944: THE RAVEN—4335 (Lilamani x Smolder) M. 36 in. We have long hoped for a really superior black purple iris among our seedlings, and we think we have it at last. It combines the rich and glowing color of Lilamani with the glossy finish and heavy substance of Smolder in a neatly flaring, slightly ruffled form. The flowers are large and well and well spaced, the plant exceptionally vigorous and hardy. $15.00.
