From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1942: “Remarkable classic, rich, high finished bicolor of high quality, an eloquent blue bicolor. While it does not have quite the sharpness of Amigo in color it has essentially the same color pattern of lovely light sky blue standards and rich plush-blue purple without veining or other detracting mars. Its contrast of color and rich orange beard adds to its lovely symphony of color. Generally large iris are not rich in color, but this has luster, size and stem habit – striking both for beauty and size.”
From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1946: “An Amigo-type Amoena; very rich and velvety, much taller than the famous Amigo and with flowers of great size. Contrast in color is not as sharply defined as in the case of its predecessor but it is a magnificent iris. Stock is extremely scarce.”
