From Wayman’s catalog 1939.

42″ Very Sweet Fragrance. Honorable Mention and award of Merit  American Iris Society. Very large flowers with semi-flaring falls measuring 7 inches across. S—domed, beautifully ruffled, very soft lobelia violet, so soft as to be almost white, but exquisitely dainty; F—same color, with an almost imperceptible soft greenish flush at the centre to add to its attractiveness. A frosty iridescence covers the entire flower.

From Cooley’s Catalog 1949: “An iris of huge size with pale blue petals. Wonderfully well formed and a noble flower, waved and ruffled. Sometimes called “ice blue”. .

HM 1933, AM 1935.
