From the Cornell Extension Bulletin 112: "Color effect a light lavender, prune purple veined bicolor. Standards. light lavender-violet reticulated violet. falls, velvety prune purple, closely and distinctly veined the same on the glistening lavender outer haft, reticulated brown. Beard fine, dense, bluish, with orange tips.
This iris is of moderate growth and has stiff, slender foliage. The stalk is not tall, but is well and widely branched. The conical carriage of the tinted standards and dark spreading falls give interesting color contrats in late season. The standards may occasionally bear flecks."
From H. P. Simpson catalog, 1922: PERFECTION (Barr, about 1880) S. light blue; F. dark violet-black. Handsome flower, but not large enough for its bold contrasts. 28-32- inch. 25¢
 
An iris that really lives up to its name. Perfection is just that - fantastic growth, loads of flowers over a long bloom period, disease resistant foliage, perfect form and overflowing with charm. What more could you want? MikeUnser - 03 Jan 2010
