From the 1971 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: In some ways this lovely lilac orchid can be most appropriately called a "high fashion" creation. When you see this beauty's subtle color, its pearly luster, lightly ruffled blooms are of heavy substance and carved perfection of form, you will share our enthusiasm for this splendid variety. The color is clean and fresh with a polished look, a quality not always associated with lavender tones. Ideal in form, it has sturdy, well-branched stems with 3 branches or more and 11 buds per stem, emphasizing its vigorous growing qualities.
