References:

From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1955: SMARTYPANTS (Alice White). As the name implies, it is a bold little rascal. Proud of its red veined falls, its sunny yellow standards beam like the smile on the face of a little boy with a fancy new pair of pants. Pert, saucy, and captivating. 16 in. 7Sc.
