From Fairmount Gardens catalog for 1955: “Light and airy, the very ruffled flowers of Egyptian buff and white have great appeal in their luminous color harmony. The crisp fluted standards are buff, firmly held by the strong midrib. The broad flaring falls are white, lightly bordered with the buff of the standards, and the center of the flower is illuminated by a deeper glow accentuated by the short orange beard. The flowers have firm texture, and are poised on strong well branched stalks. A charming iris.”

From Diehl’s Gardens catalog 1955: “Crisp fluted standards of buff with broad flaring falls of white lightly bordered with buff. Short orange beard. Heavily ruffled flowers with firm texture well placed on strong well branched stalks.”

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1956: “Buff and white bicolor. Standards are white and firmly held; falls are white with buff border and are broad and flaring. Ruffled, light, and airy. This all adds up to a charming iris.”
