   Orange Parade is 'orange orange,'  believe me.  I think Melba 
Hamblen called it Spanish orange.

   Orange Crush is a burnt orange, as I recall, which means it is 
darker with brownish tones - like the current Golden Panther, which 
is not golden or the Great White Hope, which isn't white.    Orange 
Frills is one I never saw, and as Neil said with those irises from the 
hybridizer Suiter,  they might have lacked distribution.  I don't know 
how 'orange' Orange Frills is.

You might check p. 99 of The World of Irises, under The Quest for 
Orange, for other varieties of that day.  The AM winners were:

Celestial Glory
Orange Parade
Chinese Coral
Mission Sunset
Son of Star

A child of OP is Ahead of Times.  It is a good grower and always 
rebloomed for me around July 4th.
