From J.C. Nicholls Irises catalog for 1928: Standards and falls amber shading into olive green with a hint of lavender, flaked and striated with deep purple maroon. Flowers large. It is early, hardy, and blooms freely over a long period. It is a hybrid of the bearded Iris, Lutescens Aurea, and the oncocyclus, Susiana. Quite different from any other. We consider it beautiful and appealing, and worthy of a place in every collection.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1961: AQUARELLE. Here is the first of a series of hybrids from the Garden of Dr. Peter Werckmeister of Germany. It is extremely Oncolike with very broad and waved standards of silver-gray with violet veins coming from a solid colored mid-rib. The creamy falls have veins of violet. It has a small, pale signal. The name comes from a type of medium in painting. Regeliocyclus X I. susiana M 15". Werckmeister '61. $10.00
