Awaiting original catalog description
From The Bulletin of the American Iris Society_, No. 199 (October 1970): 51. Opal has long been a leader in developing new and exciting color combinations in irises notable for extreme width and vigor. Two of the recent products, both from PIPES OF PAN, are truly exceptional: BARCELONA (Opal Brown '67, HM '68, AM '70) is a tallish, stately number of excellent growth and branching. The standards are variously described as yellow, yellow-ochre, beige-champagne, and the falls pansy purple or wine red. Colonel Blimp would have described it perfectly as tawny port floating on claret. Whatever your choice, the bright tangerine beard goes amazingly well with the petal colors. [H. M. Parker, “Thirteen Is a Lucky Number,”
