SUVA (Plough '68). Beautifully tailored plicata with most unusual pattern. Closed standards have wide blue bands brushed toward the white center of the petals. Semiflaring falls have narrow blue bands, surrounding crisp white centers, which widen and increase to high color saturation at the haft. Stiff slender stalks with good placement. Deserves recognition. [Sexton, Don (1972). Varietal Comments, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 26.]
