TUXEDO (Schreiner '65) The latest, and we are inclined to think definitely the best, of a long line of excellent blacks from this breeder. Black from the blue side, the large flowers show a uniform depth of color, coupled with a richness of texture that looks black. Tall, well-branched as we saw it in Ohio, this is one we covet. [Ralph and Helen Lewis, “Iris from the Carolinas to Iowa and Ohio,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 89.]
