References:

From Iris Test Garden catalog, 1958: CAHOKIA. (Faught 1948). One of the very finest blues and considered by some the purest blue we have. A hint of turquoise in the blue gives a positively enchanting shade of blue. Enhanced by a pale lemon-colored beard, Cahokia is certainly one of the finest of the light blues. H. M. 1949. $1.00.
CAHOKIA (Faught) "This light blue seems to be a variable performer. Sometimes it is outstanding in other places or other seasons not particularly distinguished. It is not reliably hardy in Nashville. Unquestionably it is a good parent." [Jesse E. Wills (Tennessee), “Varietal Comment, Irises Seen in Nashville” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 71.]
