References:

From Quality Gardens catalog for 1931: This is a cross between 'Cardinal' and 'Rose Madder'. The color is red and it is a self color. The falls appear darker than the standards because of their velvety quality. Without question this is one of the outstanding introductions in recent years and we shall be glad when the stock is sufficient that it may be in every garden.
From Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932: DAUNTLESS. The peer of all red irises, a Dykes medal winner in America, and certainly one of the finest things ever introduced. The blooms are of great size, on tall stems, and flower over a long season. In color DAUNTLESS appears much redder than most other so-called red irises, due partly to the fact that it carries a mixture of orange and brown in its pigment and very little blue or purple. Across the garden it glows like fire. It was the finest variety seen in New England last season. Each $6.50; three for $15.00
 
From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: DAUNTLESS (Connell, 29) Light wine red standards, lightly infused with cream yellow. Dark velvety wine red falls and yellow beards. Only the second iris to win the highest medal, DAUNTLESS soon became a leading progenitor of reds. Dykes Medal 1929. $5.00
