From the 1937 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: An amoena type in cream and watermelon rose. Its luminous cream standards, ‘silken, hushed and chaste,’ are the last word in serene but warm exquisiteness. The watermelon rose falls are veined rather than solidly colored. A very lovely iris.
From the 1939 René Cayeux Iris Catalog: Strong plant, well branched 3 feet stems. S. very large, ivory deepening light yellow at the margins, large sulphur yellow styles; drooping falls of same colour adorned with distinct ochraceous maroon lines running almost evenly from the base to apex giving a striking novel appearance. A very attractive flower.
