From the Stevens Chronicle: Standards brilliant rose-red with bronze shadings; Falls deeper tone of the same shadings.
INSPIRATION (Stevens 1937) ML. 38". This was one of the most interesting seedlings we had in our test beds last season. A development from New Zealand, it is a harmony of rich colors. Glistening light carmine or rose madder, it represents a particular color tone without counterpart in any other iris. A self of very fine size and good branching stems. At times in the garden it seemed to carry in the distance as a very deep pink. $7.50 [Schreiner's Iris Lovers catalog, 1940.]
