References:

From Schreiners Iris catalog, 1947: DANUBE WAVE (Schreiner 1947) M. 38". A lovely harmony of color and style. This rich mid-blue arising from the cross of Anitra and Narain combines the splendid breeding of these two distinct families of blues most effectively. We enjoy a number of good blue iris but relatively few distinct new shades have been added to this class in several years. Danube Wave is very much a self, a rich shade of marine blue, remarkably blue. Its outstanding quality is its depth of coloring. Very thrifty with exceptionally well substanced and poised blooms. It is an iris the fancier seeking a "color note" will prize. Tall stems, well branched. Price, each $15.00.
"Danube Wave, a deep-toned medium blue of good form, which did not strike me as a great improvement. It has better falls than Gulf Stream, but is not so smooth." [John Dolman, Jr. (Pa.), “Forty-Nine East,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 115 (October 1949): 44.]
