SUDAN (1921) PBF

TB-M-S6D (superseded? AIS Checklist 1939)


I have some concerns about the ID for this iris, despite the fact that it came from a highly respected source, as the purple based foliage is only very faint.

Bicolour, Standards primuline yellow flushed fawn colour. Falls velvety raisin purple with a light border, variegata habit. To 27"[70cm]. Falls rounded, wire edge segments, beard conspicuous, orange, brown speckled. Rich compact flower, type of Mrs Cowley. Foliage tinged at base. Standards with tips adpressed. (AIS Bulletin #9)



In the way of Mrs Cowley but larger and lighter. Standards arching bronzy yellow, falls drooping deep carmine violet. 2'.[60cm] (Wallace 1921/24/34)
