From Carl Salbach catalog, 1928: STIPPLES (Essig) 1928. (Nuee d'orage X Opera). A most unusual and pleasing novelty plicata. The flowers are neat, clean cut, white with definite clear bluish-violet stipplings on the falls. Thestandards are mostly bluish-violet but with pronounced stipplings. The crests are bluish and noticeably long and graceful, while the falls are markedly flaring. The stalks are slender and stiff and attain a height of from 20 to 30 inches. The foliage is bright and rather fine. The rhizomes, though small, are very hardy. $5.00 each.
On 16 April 2024 Jeff Bennett posted to Historical bearded irises Facebook page the following with photos:
WORLD PREMIERE online photo! I saw this bloom earlier in the day but didn’t get back to photograph it until evening. I’ve waited 18 months for this 96 year old iris to bloom. Finally! Another missing iris is now identifiable to match your NOIDS you have been sitting on and wondering about, or is it that rare? This is from one of my local hybridizers. He won the Dyke’s Medal in 1935 for TB Sierra Blue from 1932. He only introduced 3 IB irises. No photos of any of them until now. Let’s see your face mister.
Daytime pictures added today. 4/17/24. It’s about 26 inches tall( guessing) 8 more stalks rising! Liking this.
