From Edenwald Gardens catalog, 1957:BENEDICTION (Buss '50) VL. 36". "A blessing at the close of service," this very late iris is the last to bloom here. Satin sleek and very luminous bluish wine self, a color not duplicated by any other, falling somewhere between Imperial purple and heliotrope. The brown-shouldered hafts and magnetic blue patch extending beyond the blue-tipped beard enhance this appealing color ensemble. Very stylish form with stiffly firm petals, the standards erect, conical, ruffled, the pointed falls admirably arched and flaring. Profuse bloom of average size, beautiful and distinct. Front cover. $3.00
