From Iris Test Gardens, Yakima Washington, 1960.
The flowers have gleaming pure white standards well domed, and delightfully fluted. The falls are semi-flaring of velvety red-purple with only a slight brownish flush at the haft, and almost no veining each side of the thick yellow beard. The blooms are clear and clean in color with strong, well branched stalks. A distinct imrovement in the amoena class.
