From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1951: BAYOU SUNSET McMillan) MSD Award 1949, H.M. 1950. This striking iris begs for adequate description. The 8 inch flowers are of a striking deep rose-pink with hints of amber and gold in its make-up. The large raying signal patch almost covers its broad, almost orbicular sepal that recurves. The texture is very firm,and holds up well in sun and rain. Definitely one of the most outstanding iris in the Louisiana group. $4.00.
