From J.C. Nicholl’s Irises catalog for 1928: “Both standards and falls have the same tone, clear bright violet pink self. The falls have a white flush from the center of the blade to the haft. No veining of any kind. Grows vigorously and blooms freely. The blooms are large, of splendid texture, and have a perfection of form and finish hard to equal. Gracefully borne on 4-foot stalks. Its great popularity will continue.”

From Carl Salbach Iris Catalog 1929: “One of the most beautiful pink irises. Standards and falls are of the same pure bright violet-pink with no markings. The flowers are of good size, perfect form and sweetly scented, freely produced on 40-in. stems. . . . . . . . . . . . . . $3.50.”

From Quality Gardens catalog for 1931: “Unquestionably the best of the violet pinks. It is certain that for purity of tone and brightness of color it stands in a class by itself. The flowers are of good size and shape. In color it is a pure violet pink self, standards and falls being identical in tone, the latter having a pleasing white flush from the center of the blade to the haft. The standards are strong and beautifully arched, the falls smooth and glossy, with no prominent veining or reticulation. One of the most vigorous growers in the garden.”

From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “A tall, pink-toned variety with a pleasing white flash at the throat. A Pallida seedling. 44 in.”
