From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1932: “First season offered in America. A very beautiful, superb pink iris, with very large, oval shaped flowers in the uniform shade of soft pink, with deep gold beard. The stalks are almost shoulder high, and in the English trial grounds at Wisley it proved a sensation. American visitors at the English shows where struck with its beauty. Dogrose was awarded the silver medal at the London show, when exhibited as a seedling in 1929. Very limited stock.”

From the Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog for 1939: “A lovely pink iris with oval shaped blooms of a cool, clear tone. A tall, free-blooming sort that is fine for landscape work. Delicate and refined.”
