| From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing BRIGHT BUTTERFLY-Sib Apricot Royal. Exciting; heavily laced buds open into beautifully ruffled flowers of brilliant clear orange. Tightly closed standards. This is a beauty. 25.00. Bennett Jones.
| The best form and color in orange Irises to date is found in BRIGHT BUTTERFLY. Its brilliance of color and performance in this part of the country were pleasant surprises to Bennett Jones when he was here this spring. Sometimes it doesn't increase very fast, but oh, those flowers! [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 11.]
