From Schreiner's Catalog, 1952: BLUE ENSIGN (Meyer 1937) ML. 33". Certainly one of the most striking of the Iris we have tested of English origin. It is novel both for its color and form. A beautiful shade of royal blue with blue beard and rounded petals of a decided oval appearance. Dykes Medal, 1950, England. $2.50.
From Fleur De Lis Garden catalog 1956: BLUE ENSIGN (Meyer 1937) M. 36 in. (Magnificat x Blue Danube). Rich, medium blue of flaring form and fine finish. An excellent parent, this was winner of the Dykes Medal in England for 1949. 1.00
