From the 1975 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: With all due allowances for the "extravagant" tendencies of all catalog writers, we estimate the variety Showcase the most unqiue bright yellow plicata. Its brightness, concise pattern and that intangible quality, surely make it one of the most exciting. This is a sparkly marked gem with an exact ¼" penciling of maroon brown on the falls, edging into pure lamplight yellow with a dash of white interfusing at the tip of the beard. The standards are marked and patterned the same way. It has a particular warm glistening petal texture of yellow, highlighted further by the ruffling and fluting and marks this as a plicata you will not want to miss. A single stem opens 3 at at time, 8 buds, 3 branches.
