From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1949: CORNFLOWER (Whiting 1948) N0. 4413 (SEA BLUE X GREAT LAKES) Late midseason, 36 inches. A really blue self. Not one of the largest, but one of the bluest irises we have ever grown. Darker and much bluer than either of its parents, it comes close to cornflower blue, of classical form, with well domed standards and nicely flaring falls. Branching good, plant growth very vigorous. $4.00.
From Marble Iris Gardens catalog, 1951: CORNFLOWER (Whiting 1948). LM 36 in. A really blue self. While this Iris is not of the largest it is one of the bluest. Darker than Great Lakes, it has excellent form with well domed standards and flaring falls with good branching. Each $1.00; 3 for $2.50.
