See below:



From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1941: "A huge golden pink, with slight undertones of copper. The flowers are well shaped, with closed standards and falls that are semi-flaring, but there is a suggestion of ruffling in the entire blossom. This iris might be visualized as a giant Noweta, of perfect form and with more intense coloring. It has excellent branching and the stems are three to four feet tall. The name is most appropriate, and we regret that our color plate could not be completed to include in this year's catalog."
It would be hard to imagine a more lovely flower than this medium pink blend from Dr. Kleinsorge. Some shades of pink are apt to be insipid, but this flower has enough life and depth of color to give it definite garden value. Very good in substance, form, and branching. Douglas, Geddes (1942). More Variety Comments, 1942. American Iris Society Bulletin, 88 (January 1943), 62.
