References:

From Carl Salbach catalog, 1930: ALLURE (Murell, 1927) (Imperator X Shekinah). This lovely iris is an entirely new break in color. The rich canary yellow is overlaid and flushed violet pink, both colors being deepest in the falls. The color effect is very like that of some of the new pink and yellow snapdragons. Allure is a late blooming iris of medium tall growth and stout branching stems, and vigorous growth. The flowers are good size with ruffle-edged standards. Awarded silver medal by the British Iris Society 1928. $20.00.
From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: ALLURE (Murrell 1927) M. 40" S.F.(slightly fragrant). This fine Iris is an entirely new break in color, and it is almost impossible to convey an adequate impression of the dainty and pleasing effect it gives. The ground color is a rich canary yellow and this is overlaid and flushed with pink, more deeply in the falls than in the standards. The beard and style arms are yellow. The flower is of good size, beautifully formed and poised, with ruffled standards. The coloring is particularly lustrous. The plant is an exceedingly vigorous grower with stout branched stems. The exquisitely delicate tones of this iris become more beautiful when planted in partial shade. (The colored plate is about one half the actual size of the flower.) Silver Medal English Iris Show 1927. $8.50.
