From Schreiners Iris Lovers Catalog 1987 (Introductory catalog for this iris): “Silverado is a modern achievement in flower form. The fully broad yet heavily substanced petals are so lavishly ruffled. This cool blue white self dances with artistic flare. Tall sturdy stems superbly display 8-9 bids on two nicely spaced branches.”
