From the 1980 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Like a meteor blazing through the heavens this comet will similarly set your garden ablaze with its bright color. In fact this is one of the orangest Iris that we have ever seen. The same rich orange-amber shade saturates the haft, beard, falls and standards. Skyfire is tailored in style and has fine poise and a good stem. Its flower is of average size on a three-branched stem with a complement of 5 to 6 buds. Such a compelling color is sure to immediately attract each and every eye. Unique and beautiful!
