From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1999 : “Here we have a “fancy” amoena with many superlative attributes: an engaging color combvinationm ruffled flaring form and pronounced fragrance.The photo captures Boogie Woogie’s exhuberant personality. Note how the soft washing of violet on the falls deepens at the shoulders and draws attention to the pristine white standards. HM ’95, AM ’97.”
