From AIS Bulletin #229, Spring 1978 Introducing BRONZE FIRE (Roy Johnson '78). SDB, 15", M-L. Sdlg. 4701RA. The molten glow of highly polished bronze gave this iris its name. Golden bronze standards, with slightly deeper-colored falls, set off with brick red shoulders, making a smoldering clump effect in the garden. Blooming during the SDB season, and with repeat bloom (usually taller) coming with your IBs, makes a clump in bloom a long while. Best seedling seen at the 1976 meeting of the Mid-America Median Iris Society meeting. Brass Accents X SDB sdlg. 2711: (blue sdlg. x reddish black sdlg.). $10.00. Maple Tree Gardens.
