The color coding system is somewhat arcane, but I do not think you have got
quite the right interpretation. I would translate 'B7D' as a deep red (or
pink) toned blue self - in other words, a solid purple iris.

No. The Checklist indicates it was not introduced, but the '49 checklist
overlooked the introduction dates of many cultivars that were introduced.

'Etc.' should be interpreted as meaning something like "remaining
information the same as in the previous entry for this cultivar" (There is
no 'etc.' in the entry for J.S. Woodsworth, and no previous entry, either)
