From The Iris Garden catalog of Dorothy Stoner, 1940: “Brilliant dark purplish blue with bright gold beard, midseason tall.”
From  Robert Wayman ‘Rare Iris and Peonies’ 1940 ’48” I like this better than the Dykes Medal Winner Sierra Blue. THE FINEST RICH DEEP BLUE CREATED TO DATE. It is a huge flower of uniform color throughout of fine form, with a brilliant golden beard in charming contrast, a prodigious bloomer and it stands out majestically shoulder high. A fine stock permits a very low price for such a choice Iris  .20′

(Amas x Conquistador).
