"The first "red" iris I ever saw was Dr. Lee Lenz's Claremont Indian. He produced it in the 50s, in a cross of innominata and probably douglasiana. It was the foundation for the reddish irises that appeared in Southern California, such as ' Pasadena Indian' and ' Native Princess' by George Stambach.
