LITTLE CHESTNUT (Brizendine '71)-A rightly named tailored SDB, one done in shades of brown (orange-brown standards, dark brown falls). It is a profuse bloomer that adds a new color note to the early iris garden. [Joe Gatty, “A Median Review,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 55, No. 214 (July 1974): 56.]
