From the 1976 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Multiply, if you can, our color picture four times adding the perspective of "shine or lustre"—pearl-like—and the poise of an effusive patrician Iris—then you approach the embodiment of the superior qualities of this illustrious Iris. Since we first singled out this variety for offering we have been serarching for an idea of phrase that would do justice to thisintrinsic, unusual new specimen. The bloom is large sized, artfully ruffled, has exceptional branching as well as substance to meet the most exacting weather condition. Imagicne a self of cool icing of cranberries—that's it! It is a trite phrase to say it has to be seen to be appreciated, but so true..
