See below:


From AIS Bulletin #161, April 1961. Introducing BROADMEADOW. Magnificently ruffled powder blue of very large size. Intricate fluting lends unmatched charm to a truly different form. Superb substance. HC 1960., Sdlg. #8-7A7. $20.00. Brown's Sunnyhill Gardens.
BROADMEADOW (Brown '60) was another surprise. It is an extremely broad self of blue-white, very ruffled and somewhat serrated. A little short and low on buds, but what an outstanding individual blossom. [Joseph Ghio, “The 1965 Iris Season in Review,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 80.]
