From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1983: “Named for the eyecatching ¼ inch white band that circles its violet-grape falls like a ringo-jingle. Here we have fresh contrasting bicolor tones of purple against white standards. Gaiety continues with the tangerine-red beard and nice light ruffling throughout. An excellent addition. Swell stems, 6 to 7 buds. Handsome is as handsome does. Sure to enrapture you too.”
From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1983: “Standards bright white, falls grape with a quarter-inch white rim. Beards are tangerine. Flower lightly ruffled.”
