From Mission Gardens Iris Catalog 1963: “A most interesting and beautiful bitone iris. The standards are pale violet and the falls are deep lilac. The segments are broad, waved and ruffled.”
From Cooley’s Iris Catalog 1967: “This new break in iris, breeding has attracted wide attention. The standards are pale violet, deepening in tone to the deep lilac of the flairing falls. With its very broad petals and huge size it will be immediately spotted in any planting.”
