From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1974: “This wine and pink bicolor is most distinguished with its rich, velvety grape-wine falls and a lavender-pink pin stripe around the edge. Standards lavender-pink, well closed – tangerine beard. Strong stalks and good growing habits.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “This flamboyant, striking bicolor is most distinguished with rich, velvety, grape wine falls that have a lavender-pink pin stripe edge. The graceful, ruffly standards are suffused lavender pink, echoing the pin stripe of the falls. An exciting new wine and pink bicolor. Stock limited.”
