From AIS Bulletin #224 Winter 1977 Introducing CINNAMON SAND (1977). TB, M, 36", #7-OC. $25.00. A highly ruffled and fluted flower. The standards have garnet lines and specks on a cream ground. The falls have a ¾-inch garnet rim of lines and specks around the rim. The ground is cream, gradually developing into white, and the beard is yellow-brown. Standards are arched with touching tips, and the falls are semi-flaring. This is a lovely formed flower, in effect a chocolate plicata of super form and substance. The branching is good, producing 8+ lovely flowers, 6"x7". The chocolate crest is standing upright, displaying turquoise veins. This iris is a most unusual addition with a WILD GINGER background. Gibson’s Iris Gardens.
