| From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1965: STAR AT MIDNIGHT (R. A. Rich '64) HC '63. This really dark double iris really took our eye; horizontally flaring, wide and overlapping petals are a deep midnight violet. You might think of the six bright yellow signals as a star or the radiations thereof, for at the tip of each yellow signal is a dusting of white-StarDust, what else? NET 7.50.
| From Tempo Two AU catalog, 1974: STAR AT MIDNIGHT (Rich '64 USA) Double Mid-Late. One to really take the eye. Very ruffled blooms are wide, horizontally flaring and overlapping in midnight violet with the six gold signals as the star in the centre. At the tip of each signal is a dusting of white stardust. A choice variety. HM '65. Payne Award (Top Japanese Iris Award) 1969.
