ORIGINAL CATALOG DESCRIPTION:

Thotmes III.1950.Kleinsorge.png

THOTMES III. "I would grow this iris if only for the name. The old Pharaohs have always intrigued me no end. My son did not think the color of this very exceptional, but every visitor who came into my garden this year did. It must therefore have an appeal that we didn't quite catch." Mrs. M. D. Naylor (Utah), “Varietal Comment, Comments from Region 12” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 74.
