From its US introduction in Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog 1955: “Unlike Alexander the Great, Iris hybridizers need not sigh for more worlds to conquer. Many color realms still remain unconquered; yet the famous New Zealand hybridizist, Mrs. Stevens, has once more crossed a new frontier. Here is an Iris of color combination without counterpart in commerce. Standards are clear white and falls a tint of soft blue, not the deep violet of the older amoenas like Wabash. Alpine Meadow might be described as a blue Pinnacle. This medium sized flower is the first of what we feel certain will be an entirely new series of pastel amoenas, differing from any now existing. Breeders will be glad to note that Alpine Meadow bears fertile pollen and seeds well.”
