Title: Re: [iris-photos] One more Question?
Well . . . now that I have resurrected a nearly 30-year-old slide of Momauguin (attached), I'm afraid my memory isn't so good.  The falls may match, but the standards in my slide have a good deal more red in them than the standards in your photo.   So -o, maybe close, but no cigar.  Anyhow, here's the description of Momauguin:
(Ruth Stephenson, R. 1960). TB 48" M-L. R3.
"S dark red over brown; F red-black; yellow beard. (Black Ruby X ((Auburn x Orange Gem) x Redwyne))., Old Brook 1964. HC 1963, HM 1965."
If we can identify yours, I'd really like to know what else had those blackish velvet falls in those days.  --  Griff

Very close up, I would say, like crushed velvet and from a little distance crinkled leather.  Those are great descriptions by they way!  So tell me, where can I get info on MOMAUGUIN.  Do you know the hybridizer?  Year?  Any idea where I can get that info or a picture to compare?  I am always so impressed by you "wonder Irisarians" that jump with an answer with so little info.  Your knowledge astounds me.  Thanks for any help that you have.
Have a great night!

Linda  --  Do those dark strappy falls have a sheen like crushed velvet or, even, like crinkled patent leather?  If so, it could be MOMAUGUIN.  --  Griff

One more please???????  This is a historic that I got from my Mothers Garden and have been carrying it around for years with no luck of ever matching it up with anything that I have ever seen before.  I love the colors so I refuse to get rid of it.  It is a prolific bloomer and the foliage is so clean that it makes some hybrid foliage look sick. LOL
