From Rainbow Gardens catalog for 1920: "S. campanula violet; F. rich royal purple; beard yellow. Tall and large. Splendid strong grower, free bloomer, considered one of the finest American raised varieties."
From J.C. Nicholls Irises catalog for 1928: "S. campanula violet. F. bright royal purple. The large flowers have exceptional substance, and are carried on stout stems. Very free blooming. The strongest grower we have ever seen, and it will thrive and bloom better under neglect and adverse conditions than any other variety in our experience. Was a sensation and is still near the top."
From Carl Salbach Iris catalog for 1924: "S. lavender violet; F. velvety pansy violet. Large richly colored flowers on a fine stout branched stem."
