From Longfield Iris Farm catalog, 1942: Redward (Cook No. 3939, 1942). An approach to crimson from the purple side. Large, shapely flowers of substance and brilliant color, a product of continued selection toward red in bearded Iris. Early visitors have missed this seedling in our trial rows, as it does not come into bloom until near midseason, but it has invariably attracted those coming late as a distinct and striking advance in color. The large flowers are of good spreading form, the broad standards held together nicely at the top, the velvety falls flaring widely. Detail: S. domed, between Indian Lake and Dahlia Carmine; F. flaring, Burnt Lake. Flowers 5 ins. high, 6 ins. wide; stem, 32 ins. tall, branched above middle. Plant of strong growth, free and dependable in bloom. Midseason to late. $10.00.
REDWARD (Paul Cook, 1942) - Fairly deep red with flaring falls; flower large, standards wider than in ‘Red Valor’. The depth of color is about the same as in that variety and in ‘Ranger’. Venation on the haft is about the same as in ‘Solid Mahogany’ but the beard is not so striking. [Elis Nelson, "Varietal Notes on Red Irises," The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 93.]
