Bulletin of the American Iris Society vol. 57 April 1935. Iris hauranensis Dinsm.

'. Standards-ground is P,allid. Mouse Gray almost entirely obscured by the veining and sanding of Dark Perilla Purple. 2% x 2 inches.

Falls-ground Paler Drab-Gray even more obscured by the pattern which here is so nearly confluent that this color seems to be Warm Blackish Brown dotted with the ground color. The large central blotch on the falls appears almost black but with a warm undertone of purplish brown. Under surface greenish. 2 x 114 inches.

The style branches have the same colors as the falls, but the spotting and freckling of the over color is so fine that the ground color shows through-Inner hairs white, purple tipped. Pollen white.

Very faint 8cent reminiscent of Rosa multiflora. Sheaths-tending toward being yellowish, faintly red tinged on margins.

The standards have the curious effect of a glossy surface, which is less apparent in the falls on account of the central blotch. A somewhat oil-cloth appearance in reflected light-not noticeable in transmitted light.
