From Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “Sensational in beauty of colouring, in size of bloom, and in its lovely form, this great novelty will hold the most sophisticated spellbound. Both standards and falls are ruffled, and almost circular in form, and average flowers, grown under normal conditions are fully seven inches in depth and as much across. A true self the colour is a rich bronze-toned rose, vivid in shade, enchanting in effect. Easily the largest and broadest petaled iris we have seen, but not tall.”

From Walter Marx’s Gardens catalog for 1959: “(Stevens 1950) A massive beauty of intriguing color described as bronzed toned rose. Typical flowers will measure 7 inches across. About 3 feet in height. Early to midseason.”
