Awaiting original catalog description
RED JADE (Plough '72)-this sleeping beauty was finally awakened by Prince Charming Bill Simon in his Michigan garden for the 1976 convention. While it has a slight violet cast in the falls, the overall effect is a deep red. It has lace, the most on any basically red iris, and I hope it can breed lace into a really red self. It did well for me on a one year plant. Moores, Walter A. (1977). The Season in Texas, American Iris Society Bulletin 227 (Fall 1977), 37.
