From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1972: “Could this be a model for milady’s spring bonnet? Well, let’s see: the billowy standards form a full crown, a pale beige tinted cream pouf, above the spreading brim of the luxuriously smooth toned orchid rose falls. The only extra decoration is the three orchid beards. Want to try it on? Substantial materials have been used so that the shape holds up under all conditions. An iris that is styled for the discriminating.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “A bouffant-stylish smooth unusual bicolor. Billowing standards of pale beige tinted cream cap the spreading fully expansive falls of orchid-rose. With its attractive orchid beard this beige and orchid-rose bicolor is indeed eye-catching.”
