From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1966: “A spirited burgundy red plicata. Very exotic in the mass. So much so that the identical blooms call for a second look just to assure one that they are really iris after all and not some new species of tropical orchid. Truly a vibrant novelty. Extra large blooms.”

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1967: “Getting a bit overwhelmed with blue and white plicatas? Here is the one to turn to. A plicata, but in an exhilarating tone of burgundy red with a large area of scrumptious cream in the center of the falls. The copious size of the flowers is pure ostentation and tall strong stems carry them proudly. You won’t find better.”
