From Mrs. Hires, in A. I. S. Bulletin for July 1930. A seedling raised by T. A. Washington of Nashville, and introduced by Mrs. Thos. Nesmith of Lowell, Mass. Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932: MARY GEDDES. A genuine novelty. Indeed, it is one of the most stunning in color I have seen this year—or any year. It was so lovely we returned to it several times, going the following day to see it in its home garden, where it stood out among hundreds of seedlings. It is tall, the bloom well placed on a nice stalk. A self color of light ochraceous salmon, which should intrigue one planning for color in the garden. $17.50
From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: MARY GEDDES (Washington) The latest of the Dykes Medal winners. It has held its popularity through the years since it first bloomed because of its unusual blend of soft salmonish pinks and light reddish tones harmonized by the ever-useful lavender shades. It is not a very large nor tall iris but adapts itself well to flower arrangements and makes an unusual and attractive mass of color in the garden. It is quite dependable. $1.50
