From the 1975 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Nature was in a fanciful mood when she created this demure chaste beauty. Medium sized flowers, patterned uniquely, almost silvered dainty lavender pink etching and dotting on a collateral white background; the delicacy and deftness of markings of lavender-pink is very feminine. Keeping in the mood, a pronounced lacy edging is a capping triumph more so than any other plicata. In other words it is a plicata with such an evanece quality it s difficult to capture it in a photo or on paper.
