From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1947: “Put on your Easter Bonnet with the bands of gold upon it! Truly a beautiful blush pink with an unbelievable gold band on both standards and falls. A must have for the unusual.”

From Lyon’s Irisland catalog for 1949: “An enticing new color combination of rhodenite pink, bordered with a half-inch margin of burnished gold on both the standards and the falls. A golden flush to the heart of the flower combines with a gold beard to make this startling new color combination very attractive.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1952: “A very fine rhodenite pink with a wide margin of burnished gold on both standards and falls. A gold beard sets this fine Iris off to good advantage.”

(Morocco Rose X Alastor), HM1946.
