BLUE SHIMMER (Sass, 1942): Particularly fine in New England. It is a cool weather iris, much better if planted in partial shade. Dolman. Over rated. The flowers are too large for the height of the stalk, tend to be coarse and have oversize falls. Sanford. Bloomed on 40 inch stalks. It does exceptionally well in California. Calif.

BLUE SHIMMER - The finest of the newer blue stitched plicatas. It is a robust grower and a good bloomer The pattern is delicate... (Ohio). [Unknown author, Varietal Comment. AIS Bulletin #101 (April 1946): 72]
