From Quality Gardens catalog for 1931: “A large well formed flower of most attractive coloring. The various colors in the petals and style arms seem combined into one harmonious whole of rosy brilliance, with darker velvety falls. A beautiful prominent beard. A flower of rare beauty and grace. One of the finest introductions of recent years and we strongly recommend it to our customers.”

From The Longfield Iris Farm catalog for 1936: “A brilliant rosy red self. S. and F. same shade but the heavy velvety quality of the falls gives it the effect of a bicolor. Golden beard. 38 inches.”

From iris City Gardens catalog for 1940: “A large, well formed flower of most attractive colorings; the various colors combining to give a rich rosy effect.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1940: “A large well formed flower of most attractive colorings, the colors blending to give a rich rosy effect, with deeper velvety falls. I doubt any Iris makes a more handsome mass. 36 inches.”
