From AIS Bulletin #241 April 1981 Introducing CHECK ME OUT-Sdlg. 73-15. AB, 24", EM. S. rose; F. slightly lighter, V-shaped signals; brown beards. A sister seedling of Amethyst Butterfly. Though not quite as strong a grower as Amethyst Butterfly, this one is more of an exhibition flower. Very tailored, onco looking flower. If you are seeking beauty and real aril appearance, here it is. Very pod fertile. $35.00. Pleasure Iris Gardens.
From Pleasure Iris Gardens catalog, 1984: CHECK ME OUT--Arilbred 24". Sdlg. 73-15, Big Black Bumblebee x Ardrun, S. Rose, F. Slightly lighter, brown beard. Sister seedling to Amethyst Butterfly. Here is an eyecatcher if there ever was one. Will win its share of blue ribbons when shown. Three flowers per stalk. Both these sister seedlings are fertile both ways, though I found it hard to do this on Big Black Bumblebee. $5.00
