From Schreiner’s Iris Gardens 1952 catalog: “A plicata to excite both the color conscious and the style conscious fancier! Fresher, brighter, starchier than Minnie Colquitt, its clean cut styling, jaunty ruffling, and the contrasting white blaze on the falls – gleaming like new minted silver dollars – summon the garden visitor from afar. Admired and singled out at the A.I.S. meeting in Oregon in 1949, its performance at the 1950 Midwest meeting won it the coveted “Highy Commended” Award of the American iris Society.”
From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1958: “If you like the plicata Minnie Colquitt you will exclaim over this redder, more contrasty, more brilliant improvement. the standards are almost completely raspberry-red, the falls gleaming white in the center of a surrounding band matching the standards. Beard is orange.”
