From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1941: “This is the finest blue bicolor in our catalog. A cross of Buto with Santa Barbara, it combines the deep rich color of the former in the falls with the clean blue of the latter in the standards. It is tall and well branched, blooms prolifically, and the slightly frilled flowers are produced in profusion.”

From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog for 1951: “Deep marine blue. Could be useful with Cahokia or its seedlings, and other blues.”

(Buto X Santa Barbara).
