'Cat Whiskers' is my  name for this iris.

Purple standards, deeper purple falls with marking resembling "Cat Whiskers." Beards are light yellow. This iris bloomed in May-June last year (2011), zone 5-6. It lasts a long time in the garden. I keep a hillside of this iris because it's just special.

Ayers 1929
TB - Historic - Early Season
Description from Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "...while classed as one of our superior reds, it carries a bronzy overcast, being regarded by some as a red blend. At any rate, 'Indian Chief' is one of the most popular of the newer things, and a credit to Dr. Ayres, its introducer. The velvety falls are deep blood-red, blended with bronze, and the standards are considerably lighter in tone. A large flower, quite tall, and very well branched."

TB - Historic - Midseason, 35"
From the Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: "Many years ago we set out to raise an iris with standards of purest white and falls of gold, being moved thereto by our pleasure in this fresh and lovely combination. Little by little as the years went by we have seen these colours developing amoungst our seedings until in November of 1944, there unfolded this flower, which by reason of its snow white standards rising from the primrose falls we have named 'Pinnacle'. It is not the white and gold of our original ambition - which we have called 'Summit' - and is a very different combination. 'Pinnacle' is large and beautifully formed and with excellent substance, and the plant has ideal growth habit. fresh, cool, flawless in its purity of colouring and absolutely unique, this iris has won the awards of the American Iris Society of the Honorable Mention in 1949, and then the Award of Merit in 1951, with a record number of the judges' votes, and has become world famous."

SWERTI

1612

 
Emanuel Sweerts, Dutch artist, botanist and merchant of rare plants, collected an iris on a flower-collecting excursion near Amsterdam. He dug it up, cultivated it, and eventually sold it as a rare and exotic flower. It came to be known as Sweerts' Iris.
Historic - VERY OLD - 400 Years Old
Iris Swertii, is an unromantic name for a very old, romantic looking flower. First catalogued in 1612. Swertii is recognized as one of the oldest iris which still in existence; second only to I. Florentina and I. Pallida which date from the 1500s. It is a antural hybrid, parentage unknown - courtesy, as they say, of God and a honey bee.
Iris Swertii actually means Sweerts Iris

The vultivar found today is not the registerede cultivar 'Zebra' which had white flowers striped blue. Apparently that cultivar has disappeared and a variety of 'Iris pallida' with yellow striped foliage has assumed the name. The first promotion of the new 'Zebra seemed to be in the old Lloyd Austin Catalogs of his Rainblow Gardens. It has becoe a popular lant with landscapers in some part of the USA. A close relative is 'Argentea' which is a pallida with white striped foliage.
