From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing FIRE SIREN. Several judges thought this the reddest red of any iris, and it is remontant also. It does NOT have smooth hafts, for they are white "plicata-type" from its pollen parent. Large, well-formed, well-branched, the startling red color is solid except at the haft. (Sdlg. 68-54-Red). $20.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
