From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1938: “An iris they are all talking about and one which almost everyone would buy if stock were plentiful and the price reasonably low. A flower of really huge size, pale sulphur yellow entirely overlaid with a stippling and dotting of purple. Both standards and falls are slightly waved at the edges. A buffy overtone blends the colors together. We have fine stock, but only a limited supply.”
From National Iris Gardens 1941 :”All plicatas before this one was introduced were characterized by white ground color margined blue, lavender, or rose. Siegfried was the first plicata color break, with deep creamy yellow petals stippled and dotted brown. S. are golden bronze edged brown while the ruffled F. are of cream, broadly edged golden bronze and veined red brown. Some visitors scarcely can believe Siegfried is an iris.”
From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “Huge flower, slightly fluted, late blooming. Pale sulphur yellow with stipples and dottings of brown on both the standards and falls. Very different and much in demand.”
