References:

From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: DAWN REFLECTION (Stevens 1948) Each 3.00. Considered to be one of the largest if not the largest plicatas. The wavy flowers are ivory with the edges of the falls stippled rosy purple, the standards suffused a lighter shade of rose purple. The immense blooms are poised on well branched 3 foot stems. One of the most charming iris.
From Schreiner's 1957 Catalog: Immense blooms, attractively flared and waved, have a ground color of glistening ivory, sparingly and precisely edged rose pink on the falls and more generously suffused and etched a bright lilac-pink in the standards. Branching and substance are ideal, effective in the clump.
