From AIS Bulletin #209 April 1973 Introducing OSAGE BUFF '73. M. 36". $25.00. An original flower with garnet red markings on an apricot ground. A delightful plicata. It is ruffled and fluted, perfect in form and texture. The standards are apricot with a light garnet red flush thruout. The falls are also apricot ground with a light garnet stitched and flecked rim highly fluted. 6"X7" flowers with poppy red beard. Branching a little high. A lovely and unusual plicata, garnet red on apricot ground. #13-8E. Gibson's Iris Garden.
In order of bloom, next came the four star OSAGE BUFF. If you don't have it, by yourself a treat. With a sort of apricot-orchid base ground, overlaid with red violet dots and stippling, it is totally unique. The form is excellent and placement on stalks first rate. Could use a few more buds and be taller, but those are minor flaws compared to the overall quality of this one. RANCHO ROSE, its child that has had such rave reviews, couldn't touch its parent for pure color and quality.[Margaret Dean, (NM), “How They Grow, New Mexico Style”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 246 (July 1982): 13.
