From Perry's Hardy Plant Farm catalog, 1924: A magnificent tall-growing, large-flowered variety of un- usual colouring which might almost be described as a greatly improved Quaker Lady. The standards are of great size and finely arched, deep lavender-rose shot with bronze. The slightly reflexed falls are a rich lavender blue shot with rose and bronze. The rich buttercup yellow of the beard and style arms lights up the whole flower in a most beautiful manner. The blooms are very sweetly scented. 21/- each.
