References:

From Sidney Conger Louisiana Iris catalog, 1952: OPAL DUSK. (Debaillon-Dormon). Once thought lost, it has recently appeared again. The beautifully formed flowers of campanulate form and overlapping floral segments display the blue and light violet hues of an opal and are so blended as to create an opalescent effect; thus the name. The stiff foliage that stands erect is unique. 30". $3.50.
