Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1999: “This highly acclaimed reverse blue amoena is attracting a lot of attention. The photo illustrates this unusual color pattern’s deep Colombian blue standards and very pale blue-violet falls. The petals have heavy substance and are graced with wide ruffles. As an extra ‘In Reverse’ has a delightfully sweet fragrance.”
