DISPLAY (Grant 1942) M. L. A noteworthy late flowering variety that is deep in color, yet carries well in the garden. The standards are deep mauve rose with strong midrib. The semi-flaring falls are velvety Spanish red shading to deep maroon at the haft. The beard is dark yellow flecked with brown and gives added depth of color to the strong sturdy flowers. Wide and low branching. Dr. Grant considers this iris one of his best introductions. Colors taken from Dictionary of Color. 35 in. $20.00. Fairmount Gardens Catalog. Summer 1942, Spring 1943, Lowell, Massachusetts
DISPLAY (Grant, 1941) - Mahogany red, color about the same depth as in 'Flamely' but a little deeper than in 'Jasper Agate'; standards long, falls with some sheen; a little venation on haft, beard dusky orange, stalk relatively short. [Elis Nelson, "Varietal Notes on Red Irises," The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 92.]
