From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1940:SHAH JEHAN (Neel) Here is an iris that has all the rich colorings of a beautiful oriental rug. The standards are a delicate creamy buff faintly edged lavender. The falls are rich and lustrous, quickly blending from a light fawn at the haft through glowing copper and deep chestnut, to a deep velvety purple which is the predominating color. An edging of soft plum shading to light lavender completes the picture and makes Shah Jehan one of the most strikingly colored of all irises. Medium size flowers on 3-foot stems. 35c; 3 for 75c.
Shah Jehan (Neel). A most fascinating iris, saw it with four branches—blossoms open on each one. Flowers well balanced in size for stalk. Most unusual. Lovely. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 18.]
