From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1952: “Dramatically, this rich yellow plicata is heavily overlaid glowing Indian red, giving a spicy splash of gorgeous color.”

From DeForest’s Irisnoll catalog for 1954: “Deep, bright yellow ground, heavily overlaid rich “Indian” red. On of the very brightest in this plicata group.”

From Walter Marx Gardens catalog for 1956: “Bizarre and flashy plicata that usually draws that second look. Rich yellow ground heavily plicated Indian red. Rather late.”
