The Garden p.299, June 19, 1915
"Iris Maori King. Among the dwarf Irises suitable for the border or rock garden it would be difficult to find one more beautiful than Maori King. This belongs to the variegata section. having dwarf tufts of bright green, sword-like foliage, whence the 15 inch high flower-stems emanate. Each carries several blossoms, the standards of which are buttercup yellow. The bold falls are definitely edged with this rich yellow, each bearing at its broadest or outermost part a large patch of dull crimson. As this flows towards the centre of the flower it resolves itself into beautiful crimson-purple venation."
