From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1946: “A singular new iris color – melting pink, like foam on a strawberry soda, with deeper lines of rose at the haft. A rich startling tangerine beard. Novel for color alone as the flowers are too small for the stems. An iris to be enjoyed as a clump for its novel coloring. A breeder’s iris.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1947: “Something entirely different in color – a melting cameo-pink that has been referred to as ‘like the foam on a strawberry soda.’ It has lines of heavier color near the haft, with a most startling shrimp-red beard. Not large, it is an Iris to be enjoyed as a clump for its most novel color.”
