From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “Very tall salmon colored self, possibly the nearest to this color ideal that has ever been offered. The throat is lit with gold, giving it a brilliance and warmth especially telling in garden effect. Stock is scarce, and we have only a few rhizomes for sale this year.”

From Iris City Gardens catalog for 1940: “A glorious definte garden effect of salmon pink. A lovely, large shapely iridescent flower of silky texture. Vigorous.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1940: “Very fragrant. A delightful new salmon or hydrangea pink, with as many as 12 blooms to the stem, now offered for the first time at a very low price. Entirely different from all other pinks. The large shapely flowers have a delightful silky texture.”

(Aphrodite X Vesper Gold), HM 1934, AM 1936.
