BLUE BLAZES (Welch) "A big medium blue that is impressive because of its size, but it somehow seems a little coarse. It has a yellow beard and a white area around the haft. The color is nice but somehow it just misses distinction." Jesse E. Wills (Tennessee), “Varietal Comment, Irises Seen in Nashville” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 71.]
From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: BLUE BLAZES. (Welch '50). M. (B-50: (Gudrun x Easter Morn) x (Great Lakes). Lovely, tall, clean, smooth blue with quality written all over it. Superb blood for blues and whites. H.C.'49, H.M.'51. $3.50.
