From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1941: “A huge golden pink, with slight undertones of copper. The flowers are well shaped, with closed standards and falls that are semi-flaring, but there is a suggestion of ruffling in the entire blossom. This iris might be visualized as a giant No-We-Ta, of perfect form and with more intense coloring. It has excellent branching and the stems are three to four feet tall. The name is most appropriate.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “A gay, percolating golden pink with a coppery undertone. One of the finer pink blends. Good form and substance and a good stalk. A slight suggestion of ruffling gives it a delightful, informal air. Colored as the first blush of morn.”
Tied for Dykes Medal in 1946, runner-up for Dykes in 1945.
