From 'Rainbow Fragments', Sturtevant, 1922: A ruffled white and mauve plicata, standards erect to arching, nearly covered with the violet frill; falls drooping, clear white strongly margined with violet. beard white to yellow minutely tipped brown.
From Adamgrove catalog, 1997: DAMOZEL (Morrison, 1922) Tall Bearded diploid. Plicata, with the standards largely covered in soft violet-blue and the falls mostly white with a narrow strip of violet down each side. The whole affair is frankly a little saggy by today's standards, but it wasn't bad for the times and it reminds us of its breeder. Mr. Morrison was very active in many branches of horticulture, worked for USDA for many years, and contributed to iris society publications prolifically. $5.00
