From the 1974 Schreiner's Iris Lovers Catalog: What a sparkling gem...a handsome firmament-like blue iris that will gleam serenely and be treasured in your garden. The extra smooth pigmentation sets a new standard in the advancement of a pure light blue iris. Several shades lighter, more silvery than our famous SAPPHIRE HILLS, it is a bold advance in the goal of an absolute true blue! BLUE REFLECTION is happily, generously endowed with well textured blooms that have an airy, fastidious, fluffy fluting and ruffling. A self of remarkable purity, the lemon white beard fits in perfectly with its chaste coloration. A waxen sheen on each bloom emphasizes its quiescent comeliness. Fine structured stem with four branches with 9 to 12 buds. One of the longest flowering iris that we have developed. A sensational new blue.
