References:

From Bonnewitz catalog, 1926: CARDINAL (Bliss) — Dominion Seedling $25.00. S. distinctive shade of lavender, overlaid with rose, carried erect and arching nicely at the top; F. large of rich prune purple, carrying the distinctive Dominion shape and texture. This variety has given us the very best Iris bloom we have ever seen in our own garden, and it has withstood the late May freezes of the past two seasons better than any other Dominion seedling.
From the Indian Spring Farms catalog for 1927: CARDINAL - "Dominion Seedling. One of the richest flowers of the Dominion race that carries the perfect form and velvety texture of its parent to greater height on low and widely-branched stems. S. a distinct shade of lavender, overlaid with rose, erect and arching inward at the top; F. rich raisin-purple, very broad and rounded, and of wonderful glossy texture. A rich, bright Iris that gives a beautiful color effect with transmitted light."
