From the 1975 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A uniquely coalescing bicolor blend with its conical standards of antique gold with greenish midribs. Falls of violet blue melting into a margination band of the same antique gold as the standards. Ideal branching, with many buds on a stalk.
From the 1976 Melrose Gardens Catalog: Tarnished brass peaking above violet falls edged the color of the standards.
