| From Milliken Gardens catalog, 1949: ALDURA (Larsen) A firmly built flower with sharply marked blue pencilling on a clean white background making one of the most beautiful of the blue plicatas. It is not as heavily marked as Blue Shimmer but it is equally exceptional. 2-1/2 feet. $1.00; 3 for $2.50; 10 for $7.00.
| "Aldura, which did very well indeed on one-year plants, and was greatly admired by all who came late enough in the season to see it. It is not quite as blue in its markings as 'Blue Shimmer', but is so much better in form and substance that I crossed it with every decent plicata I have." [John Dolman, Jr. (Pa.), “Forty-Nine East,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 115 (October 1949): 42.]
| Sold in the following catalogs: Milliken 1949; Tell 1947.
