From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1968: “Large bitone with standards of silvery lilac and falls of burgundy. Beard is bright orange-red. Nicely formed. Well branched. Should give exciting seedlings when used with Melodrama line.”

From Wild’s of Missouri catalog for 1972: “A huge fluted, ruffled iris with domed standards of silky orchid and bright, glowing burgundy red falls. The orange red beard glows like a spotlight on the rich, velvet-like falls. Hafts are wide and ruffled; stem strong and excellently branched.”

From the Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog for 1979: “A huge fluted and ruffled Iris with domed standards of silky silvery orchid and bright, glowing burgundy red falls. The orange red beard glows like a spotlight on the rich, velvet-like falls. The hafts are wide and ruffled and the stem strong and excellently branched.”
