From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1948: “A silvery sky-blue, pure in color, of great size and beautiful form. Particularly effective and strikingly blue in late afternoon and early evening. Midseason; average height.”

From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “A rub of the lamp and this enchanting iris appears. A rare dulcet blue self with brushings of cream illuminating the unusually large flowers.”

(Purissima X Oriana), HM 1937.
