From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1941: CEDAR ROSE (Whiting 1941) M. 36 in. This iris was greatly admired by visitors in our garden and at the iris Show in Sioux City in 1940 where it was given an H. C. under the number of 39108. The name is descriptive of the color if one is familiar with modern textile color names as cedar rose has been used much in interior decoration. However it is not rose as we often think of it but red brown or brown red as you wish. The nearest one to it in Ridgway is Vandyke red although the flower is brighter than this sample. It is two-toned, the falls being darker than the standards but in the same color range and both are singularly free from any purplish overtone. The blooms are large but not huge; the petals are wide andfull, giving a rounded ample form and the substance is excellent. The stalks are of good medium height and are adequately branched to carry nine to eleven buds. The color does not fade in the sun and it is warm and glowing even on gray days or when taken indoors. It comes from a second generation cross of Matula x Summer Tan seedlings incorporating their rich color, satin smooth texture and heavy substance. The plants are vigorous and perfectly hardy; the increase is abundant and the bloom prolific. It is equally valuable in the garden and on the show bench. H. C. 19-10. $20.00.
Cedar Rose (Whiting '41) was not in evidence in the Long Gardens but I have known and used it much as one of the most valuable for its nice form and color note of pleasing brown-red at the front of plantings where very tall varieties are not practical or good."

CEDAR ROSE (Whiting, 1941) - Two-toned, brownish red, good form, medium size, good substance; light venation on haft, tip of beard purplish; lacks height. [Elis Nelson, "Varietal Notes on Red Irises," The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 92.]
