If your iris ever gets to the division stage, a very good friend of mine has a thing for varigatas similar to yours. I will give you her email address for future consideration- firstname.lastname@example.org
. she may even have something to complement yours.

Thanks, Robert. I never thought to look there. I originally got it when our area was moved to region 21 of AIS.

I noticed several pics on the internet, they seem to agree with your photo. Cooley's catalogue of 1940 shows City of Lincoln HIP Sass 1936, TB 40" M Y9D "Brightest largest and surely the finest of all true varegatas. Clear golden yellow standards, broad fiery red falls, startling in their contrast". National Gardens catalogue 1942 further states " down falling falls of velvety bright chestnut-red, conspicuous bright orange beard"
So I think you have yourself a fine historical.
