From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1944: “Large flower of subdued rose tones, bordering on lilac or pale violet. It has a slaty overcast, suggesting the soft colors of mountain valleys at sundown. The beard is gold and there is some brown shading at the haft. A sturdy and well branched stalk 40 inches tall holds the self-colored blossoms well aloft. Petals are crimped like an Oriental Poppy.”
From Marble Iris Gardens 1952 ” HM AIS 1946. A very fine blend of subdued rose tones, bordering on pale violet with a gold beard and brown shadings in the haft. Ruffled petals.”
