From National Iris Gardens catalog for 1948: “Large flowers of clear light blue with beautifully ruffled borders on both standards and falls. The beard is almost white.”

From DeForest’s Irisnoll catalog for 1947: “Large, ruffled, clear light blue. This one has been greeted with real enthusiasm. A refined, ideal iris. Sold out for 1947.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1951: “Clear pale blue, pure and uniform in color, the sensation of the Iris world the year of its introduction. Of perfect form, flaring and daintily ruffled, very large, beautifully spaced on nice stems, it is not only supreme as a light blue but ranks as one of the best of all new Irises.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1952: “A beautifully ruffled, clear blue flower with a white beard. It is of perfect form, flaring and daintily ruffled, very large and was the sensation of the Iris world during the year of its introduction. Its clear pale blue color marks it as an outstanding iris for years to come.”
