From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “A silvery sky-blue, pure in color, of great size and beautiful form. Particularly effective and strikingly blue in late afternoon and early evening. Midseason; average height.”

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “A rub of the lamp and this enchanting iris appears. A rare dulcet blue self with brushings of cream illuminating the unusually large flowers.”

From Marble Gardens 1952  “35” Beautifully shaped silvery sky blue of large size and exceptional form. Tis outstanding blue is very fine when planted with tulips and blends with all other iris in your garden.”
