| From Mission Bell Gardens catalog, 1963: CLAUDIA RENE (Larry Gaulter) Early to Late. 36'. A fantasy of color unmatched for brilliance and harmony. Raspberry-pink standards with overtones of golden amber; rose-violet falls, with rich sienna-brown shoulders and blending to ochre-yellow at the edges, decorated with a bold burnt-orange beard. Wide ruffled petals, flaring arched falls and cupped standards contribute to beautiful form. Stalks are strong and well branched. (Glittering Amber X Mademoiselle). No. 60-37. Net 20.00.
| CLAUDIA RENE (Gaulter). Named for the oldest of Mr. Gaulter's ten grandchildren. Rene was the family name of a French ancestor and is pronounced: Re-nay. Larry writes: "I think the iris-buying public should be forewarned; I intend to name an iris of good quality for each of my grandchildren even though it may take fifty years or so." [“A Few Pronunciations,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society #171(October 1963): 111.]
| Larry Gaulter’s CLAUDIA RENE has fine branching and form, and a color which you will either like or very much dislike. There doesn’t seem to be a middle ground. It is in tones of pink and violet—describe it for yourself—and it forms a clump which no one can overlook. [AIS Bulletin #170, July 1963]
