WILD GINGER is a deeply flounced and ruffled iris of brown and creamy white. Standards are a soft brown; ruffling on the 8-inch flowers extends to the throat. Heavy substance gives the flowers a longer bloom period and a good picture of this variety was featured on the cover of the October 1963 BULLETIN. [William B. Schortman, “Touring California Hybridizers’ Gardens,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 172 (January 1964): 64.
Reported Rebloom in: TX [The 2012 Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, p. 219]
Wild Ginger (Gibson). This plicata was beautiful in all gardens. Cream ground, marked and peppered with ginger-brown and with sandings of orchid, it has marvelous substance. The flowers are wide, ruffled, and flounced, and the stalks are very well branched. [AIS Bulletin #170, July 1963:43]
