From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1929: Carnival (Williamson No. 1, 1928). (Pedigree lost). Tall Bearded. Height 30 inches, stalk well branched, 11 flowers. Flower rather open, standards narrow. Standards Massicot Yellow shading into amber yellow at base. Falls horizontal; Ocher Red in region at end of beard, followed by a central area of Bishop's Purple which shades out at once towards the margin through Light Lobelia Violet to Pale Lobelia Violet. This variety was first named Sordida but as that name was preoccupied we have renamed it Carnival at the suggestion of Mrs. Thura Hires. It is a variety admired by some and detested by others. $0.50.
