Foliage tinged at base, S. arching; F. drooping; beard conspicuous, orange; crest and claw flecked maroon; styles ochre at sides. A tone deeper than Her Majesty; the veins give a lacy effect even from a distance of 20 feet.”

From Indian Spring Farms iris catalog for 1931: “A brilliant pink flower. S. rosy purple; F. lighter, veined violet. 3 ft.”

From Rainbow Gardens catalog for 1925: “While the originator describes this Iris thus: S. deep rosy purple; F. paler, veined violet, which changes to brown on the upper part, the general color is a wonderful shade of very deep pink. A greatly improved M. Aymard, deeper in color and unique on account of the brown shading of the haft. 3 ft. The finest pink Iris.”

From Cornell Extension bulletin #112: “Color effect a pale amparo purple, violet veined bicolor. S. pale amparo purple, dotted brownish red on the claw and haft. F. violet-purple veined on the lower blade and fading to amparo purple on white outer haft which is bronzed, becoming red-brown on the inner part.

The beard is fine, very dense, and conspicuously orange. The plant is of vigorous growth and has stiff, slender, deep green foliage, tinged at the base. The flowering stalks are of medium height, widely branched, and carry large-sized blooms. The throat of the flower is distinctly mottled and speckled. Rating 84.”
