From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1980: “Grace, charm, svelte poise and more! This plicata is a novelty of superlative beauty which is delightfully early blooming. The coloring of this heavily textured flower is most exceptional. It presents a unique cast of wine-red-purple. Not a red or a blue but exactly midway between. Cozy Calico is also highly distinctive because of the precise contrast this color presents against the pure starch white ground in its falls. Its unabashed free and easy manner as well as the unique pattern indeed make a fascinating combination. The stem, although not tall, is wind resistant, having enough strength to support its large flowers.”
