INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1926 Bonnewitz Iris Catalog: This is a splendid tall Pallida, and I believe that lovers of Pallida Dalmatica will be glad to welcome it. Its flowers are darker blue than those of that excellent standard variety, and some English landscape architects place Corrida at the head of the list of blue Irises for landscape work. I am glad that I have enough stock of it that I can afford to sell it at a popular price.

From the 1941 The Iris Garden Catalog: Clear, light blue; floriferous; lovely with Dream and Parc du Neuilly; late; medium height.

From the 1932 Schreinerís Iris Lovers Catalog: Neat flower, but not large. A very good light blue for massing and one of the best of the recent introductions.

From the 1923 John C. Wister Catalog: S. and F. aniline blue, a little darker than Celeste; beard inconspicuous. Makes a fine garden effect. One of the best on the new ones. 36 inches.
