From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1960, introduction: “This surprising plicata has been an attraction in both the Hall garden and in our own for the past few seasons. It has borne the nickname of Dave’s ‘Black & White’, but was not registered as such. Our illustration is quite accurate, showing the almost solidly colored blackish violet standards and bright falls of pure white with blackish margins. Most of the peppery effect is confined to the outer area of the falls. The beards are inconspicuous. Flowers are waved and flaring, well spaced on good branches, and are produced in great profusion. 33-36 inches.”
From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1961: “Plicata with almost solidly colored blackish violet standards and white falls with margins of same color plus some brown peppering. Dark brown beard. Flowers are profuse, waved and flaring, and well displayed on fine branched stems.”
