From Tell’s Iris Gardens catalog for 1951: “Huge, unusual yellow and white combination with heavy ruffling. Rather anxious to see what this and Song of Songs will produce.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1952: “This is our candidate for the most ruffled, lace-edged Iris. A spectacular flower, the heart of the bloom is bright yellow shading to white at the edges of the petals. Unopened buds are yellow and the underside of the falls are yellow though white on top. A very limited stock allows us to offer only a few rhizomes.”

From Long’s Gardens catalog for 1955: “Bright yellow and light cream with both standards and falls edged like Chantilly lace. A Dykes Medal winner and a truly remarkable iris.”

From Syllmar Gardens catalog for 1956: “A charming and distinctive bright yellow and light cream iris with both standards and falls edged like Chantilly lace. The heart of the flower is bright yellow shading to almost white at the bottom of the falls and the top of the standards. Vigorous and hardy.”

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1958: “A huge new creation, breathtaking and spectacular. A beautiful heavily-ruffled yellow bitone with Chantilly-like edging of lace on both standards and falls. Heart of the flower bright yellow shading off to almost white. Completely winter hardy. Fortunately has fertile pollen and sets seed excellently. Start now to add this effective frilling to Iris of other colors. Try crossing with Clara B, Ruffled Gem, Ruffled Apache and Limelight.”

From Iris Test Gardens catalog for 1959: “The heart of this spectacular creation is bright yellow, shading off to almost white at the top of the standards and the bottom of the falls. The entire flower is ruffled and edged in lace, like Chantilly. Unopened buds are yellow, because the undersides of the falls are yellow although faced white on top! Gigantic in size, 38 inches tall. Very late.”

From Marble Iris Gardens catalog for 1962: “The heart of this Dykes Medal winner is bright yellow, shading off to almost white at the top of the standards and the bottom of the falls. The entire flower is ruffled and edged in lace, like Chantilly. Unopened buds are yellow, because the under sides of the falls are yellow although faced white on top. This gigantic Iris blooms very late.”
