From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1943: “Broad formed flower of the size and finish of Député Nomblot done in medium rose tones….a striking iris because it is the first of the deeper colored rose pinks having an undercast of copper rather than purple. Standards Jasper pink with flushing of amaranth pink. Falls a blending of old rose to Eugenia red with the softest copper infusion lighting up the flower. Good sized blooms on tall, very well branched stems. Very well substanced; has to be seen to be appreciated.”

From Stevens Bros. catalog for 1949-50: “A smooth rosy red with a clean haft and an undercast of copper that lights up the flower, giving it a vibrant gleam. A beautiful iris and certain to be popular. 3 ft.”
