From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1952: “If you revel in clear blue Iris here is one that will delight you. A seedling of the famous Helen McGregor it is somewhat deeper though equally as true blue toned. It probably ranks with Cahokia as one of the bluest Iris we grow.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers catalog for 1953: “Here is a deluxe blue. A descendent of the famous Helen McGregor it has the fine form and poise of this splendidvariety slightly deeper in color.It and Cahokia rank astowof our bluest varieties.”
