| From Carl Salbach catalog, 1928: UNCLE REMUS (Essig) 1928. (Oriflame X Souv.de Mme. Gaudichau.) A flower of real merit, being a deep mulberry purple self of splendid form and texture. The beard is cadmium yellow with purple undertone. The stems are stiff and from 24 to 40 inches tall, the foliage clean and vigorous, and the rhizomes thoroughly hardy. It appears to be earlier than Gaudichau and has larger and altogether finer flowers. In the spring of 1926 it was judged in the garden by a committee of the American Iris Society and rated 90. The next year it was again rated 90 as a show flower. $10.00 each.
