| From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: RADIATION. Seedling 45-03. H. C. 1947. H. M.1948. A pleasing tone of orchid pink with a deep tangerine beard. The standards and falls are the same color and there is no veining on the haft. The standards ofthe large flowers are domed, the falls are semi-flaring and the substance good. The 32-inch well branched stems have never required staking. Radiation is from one of our so-called strawberry blond pinks crossed with Premier Peach. $20.00
| From Cooley's catalog, 1952: RADIATION (Hall, 1948) A pleasing tone of orchid-pink, the standards and falls the same color, with a remarkable deep tangerine beard and burnt-orange glow at the heart. Standards of the large flowers are domed, the falls semi-flaring and very wide. A more intensely colored flower than Cherie or Heritage it produces a most vivid pink garden picture. Heavy substance and sturdy growth on 32-inch well branched stalks. $10.00. HM AIS, 1948; AM, 1950.
| Radiation was the prettiest Hall pink I saw on the trip. Of course it is more of a very light raspberry shade than it is a flamingo pink. Reynolds, Mrs. Leo F., Tennessee (1949). Coming Events Cast Their Shadows, American Iris Society Bulletin 116 (January 1950), 29.
| Radiation (Hall) received almost as much acclaim as Cherie. The heavy substance, good form and brilliant beard, plus a faint violet flush over the pink bloom, make it distinctive. Mathews, Mrs. W. R. (1949). Tall Beardeds in Louisiana, American Iris Society Bulletin 116 (January 1950), 60.
| Radiation (Hall '48)—A newer, somewhat taller orchid-pink self with possibly a little cleaner color than Fantasy, but, to me, with no greater charm. Winegar, Nina N. (1949). Iris Time in the Rockies, American Iris Society Bulletin 116 (January 1950), 69.
