From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “Sleek and ebony-hued, this rich dark beauty opens three flowers at a time on a well branched 8 to 10 budded stem. The copiously wide and stiff substanced petals appear to have been polished with printer’s ink. A hint of maroon, deep within the ebony-black tints, distinguish this rich beauty. For the connoisseur – a sumptuous, dark colored novelty.”

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1980: ‘Ebony black with hint of maroon. Blue-black beard. Rich beauty with a polished look. New blood in the blacks.”
