Bulletin de la Société Nationale d'Horticulture de France, 1937, 6e série, Tome IV, p. 173.
Vilmorin-Andrieux catalog: 1938, p.4.
A peppered blue plicata which is lovely when viewed as a specimen stalk. Loses garden value when viewed from a distance. [Douglas, Geddes (1942). More Variety Comments, 1942. American Iris Society Bulletin, 88(January 1943), 62.]
This appeals to me far more than the more heavily colored Cayeux plicatas. [Fishburn, Junius P. (1940), Survey of 1940 Iris Season, American Iris Society Bulletin 78(July 1940), 54.]
