From Schreiners Iris Lovers Catalog 1951″(intro catalog in the US)”This is the largest plicata I have ever seen and a prime favorite with garden visitors. The immense blooms,attractively flared,and waved,have a ground color of glistening ivory,sparingly and precisely etched rose pink on the falls and more generously suffused and etched a bright lilac pinkin the standards. A study Iris of unusual delicacy, yet most effective in the clump.Branching and substance are ideal.One of Mrs Stevens most outstanding originations.” 15.00
