From Maple Valley Iris Garden catalog, 1937: BEAU SABREUR (Wmsn. 1930) M. L. 34 in. A richly blended variegata that often steals the show from newer stars. Its deep yellow stands are flushed with a hint of the rich red velvet of the falls. Neither very large nor tall. it has wonderful garden value. 25c.
BEAU SABREUR. A rich variegata introduced in 1930 by the Longfield Iris Farm. Bright orange-yellow standards, lightly stained bronze; falls very rich and velvety, of deep red-brown. This is a very rapid increaser, a single rhizome making a clump in one year's time. The new Crown Prince is a flower of this type, but of much greater size and height. Each $3.50; three for $9.00; ten, $25.00. _[Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932.]
BEAU SABREUR is a disappointment. The falls flatten even in fair weather. I can't say that I like the somewhat muddy color combination. [Dornblut, J., Bellingham, Wash. Varietal Notes, American Iris Society Bulletin 55(February 1935), 99.]
Undocumented description: Variegata... Dominion character... Height 34 inches. Stalk well branched, below mid height. Eight flowers, well spaced. Flowers medium to large, 4 inches x 4 1/2 inches. Standards arched; cupped, obovate, aniline yellow, the midvein about mid length to apex heavily tinged Matthew's purple; from the central purple area, this color shades out over the upper central and apical parts of the blade in a most pleasing manner; claw maroon veined. Falls drooping, broadly wedge-shaped, ox-blood red, margin very slightly paler, haft yellowish green, maroon veined, nearly joining along the margins. Beard cadmium yellow. Style branches Pinard yellow, mid lines light lavender with a tinge of the same color in the crests. Leaves medium green, base green, slightly lax. Odor slight. Poor seeder.
