From the Cornell Extension Bulletin 112: “Color effect almost a deep violet self. S. hortense violet, shading darker. F. velvety raisin purple to mulberry purple, veined the same to cotinga purple on the outer haft.

The edge of the blade is blended lighter. The beard is dense and conspicuously orange tipped. The growth is vigorous, the foliage lax, slender, and yellow-green, and the flowering stalks freely produced. The heavy flowers are borne in compact heads on stiff stems, and make a good mass of color.”

From Treholme Gardens catalog for 1928: “S. pale violet; F. same shade, richly overlaid deep purple, the edge of the standards being the same color as the falls; beard orange, tipped brown. A very large flower of good substance, being beautifully and richly colored.”

From “The Storrs and Harrison Co, Painseville Nursery Catalog”, Plainsville, Ohio, 1921:
“A distinct variety, stately in growth and massive in bloom; the somberness of its darkly veined crimson purple falls enlivened by gleaming violet rays in the standards. “
