Jean Cayeux: (Cayeux). A beautiful coffee tone with rather short branching. Has individuality. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]

Personally, I think Jean Cayeux a much finer iris than the equally famous Copper Lustre. There is less marking at the haft, the falls are a better shape, the standards are slightly ruffled, but just as open. The color is pale Havana brown with a golden glint, subdued when the shadows are long by the touch of blue in the venation and at the end of the beard.
