From the 1982 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This sparkler is the first yellow amoena to have tested our longtime loyalty to lovely Pinnacle. We like the great size, vior andhealth of this plant as well as its virginal purity. Its slightly ruffled yellow falls with no haft pattern nicely set of the pristine beauty of the light creamy-white standards. Each stem sports three branches and 6 buds. With this advance prospects for future hybridizing achievements in this class are indeed exciting. Its name was inspired by Marc Chagall's painting bearing the same title. We dediate this Iris to this famous artist—an Iris fanicer himself.
