From Carl Salbach catalog 1947: CALIFORNIA ROSE (Salbach 1947). ((Seedling x Marquita ) x Prairie Sunset.) Very large pure old rose self. Of perfect form and heavy substance, that has been greatly admired by our many garden visitors. Stems of medium height that are fairly well branched. Good growing habits and free flowering. An iris that has appealed especially to those who prefer clear soft pink shades. Mid-season. Stock scarce. $15.00.
CALIFORNIA ROSE (Salbach) "Not much is being done now toward good new pink or rose blends. While it is by no means a great iris, this is one of the better new ones. It has nice color and seems to grow well. The big flowers may be a little lacking in substance which makes them seem a little floppy at times." Jesse E. Wills (Tennessee), “Varietal Comment, Irises Seen in Nashville” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 72.
