From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “Without question, this is the bluest Iris we have introduced. It is a real masterpiece in color and form and a vigorous grower. A beautiful shade of medium blue, literally colored as the heaven’s own blue; monochromatic blue shading and pleasant ruffles combine to give each bloom a lovely flair. Ramrod stiff stems bear three to four branches with as many as three to four blooms open at one time. Our garden notes read ‘terrific color’ and we feel this will become one of the peerless blues.”
