| From Glen Road Iris Gardens catalog, 1928: MYSTERY (Sturt. 1928) This is a unique iris, so unusual that I find it difficult to picture it. Do you know Mr. Dykes’ Moonlit? Mystery is the substance of what you might call Moonlit the shadow. Its wide branching habit presents to best advantage the beautiful cupped flower; the first iris of open form that I would not change in some way if I could; it sets a standard for this type. Of perfect symmetry, the blossom is unusually harmonious in color. A buff blend of lavender and yellow on the outer parts of the falls and standards passing to old gold in the center where the accents are bright brown reticulations on either side of the orange beards. As a finishing touch Mystery is deliciously scented; 3 ft. 15.00.
| From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1933: MYSTERY (Sturt. 1931) Most harmonious blend of lavender and yellow, passing to old gold in the center. Lovely indoors as a cut flower. 38 inches. $5.00.
