From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “Clear, clean blue, of sensational size. There has never been sufficient stock to supply the demand for this iris, declared by some observers to be the last word in its color. Very few plants.”
From Tells Iris Gardens catalog for 1955: “Medium deep blue with brown on hafts.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “We have always regarded this variety as one of the classics of irisdom. The giant blooms of faultless form and heavy enameled texture are a clear rich shade of medium blue. In every way a splendid iris.”
Wittman says: “Very fragrant.”
