From Carl Salbach catalog 1937: BABET (Nesmith 1937.) This delicate new creation of Mrs. Elizabeth Nesmith is the most distinctive and attractive new Siberian we have ever seen. One of the discoveries of our trip, Babet is a variety that we are most happy to help introduce. Color lavender-lilac, perfectly set off by its delightful yellow haft markings. A real gem. Stock limited, not more than one to a customer, and we suggest that you place your orders immediately, as an early sell-out is practically certain. $5.00.
From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1938: BABET (Nesmith 1937) A most unusual and lovely Siberian of pale lavender, flushed mauve-pink, with yellow markings at the throat. A smoothly finished flower, and a new break in color. Mr. Salbach of California was greatly impressed. by the beauty of this iris, and pronounced it "One of the discoveries of our trip". Stock limited. Net. $4.00.
