From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967. Introducing BANDED BRONZE: (SERENE SERENADE X INCA CHIEF). 36". Ruffled bronze standards and golden falls, banded with one-half inch of dark brown. E.C. 1965. $25.00. Brown's Iris Garden.
BANDED BRONZE, with brown stands and golden bronze falls, which are edged dark brown, attracted attention in Wichita. One of its parents is 'SERENE SERENADE', which is also a parent of Plough's 'PUNCHLINE'. PUNCHLINE is a blend of plum and brown, with the same brown border on the falls that appears in BANDED BRONZE. Both are beautiful irises which prefer a shady spot for best results. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 11.]
