From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1963: “Largest and finest self-colored Fancy I have ever seen, a flower of elegance and refinement. Standards silvery lilac, well substanced, beautifully waved. Falls deep amethyst, veined in white over the entire surface. Superb branching. Surpasses almost all other Iris in vigor of growth and luxuriant nearly evergreen foliage. Ideal parent for transmitting real vigor of growth to your seedlings. Comes from the same cross that yielded 5 of my Horned Iris.”
