1915, Awards of Merit (of the Royal Horticultural Society)

The Garden, page 306, June 19, 1915

"Iris Lohengrin. — This is one of the most beautiful and distinct of the pallida set. The flowers are coloured rosy mauve. A variety of merit and distinction, possessed of a fine stature. From Messrs. Wallace and Co., Colchester."

"Iris Lord of June. — A good addition to the pallida set. The standards are lavender; falls, violet with gold crest. From Mr. George P. Baker, Bexley."

"Iris Rotherside Masterpiece. A bulbous kind approximating in vigour, size of flower, earliness and stature to the so-called "Dutch Irises." The standards are white; falls yellow, finely blotched gold. The texture of the flower is very remarkable. From Mr. F. H. Chapman, Rye."
