DESTINY (Burgess)-A New Zealander which should remain with us for some time to come, as it is most outstanding in quality, noteworthy particularly for richness of entire flower. rating: 90. Chas. E. F. Gersdorff, "Varietal Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 75 (December 1939): 36-37.
The most conspicuous thing about Destiny, a late variety from New Zealand, is its brilliant beard. The velvety black-purple falls have an undertone of plum red; the standards are bronze-purple. Although so dark it is not at all somber, making a grand accent plant and that shaggy orange beard gleams clear across the garden. Lila McCombs, Calif., "A Critical Evaluation of Older Iris", A.I.S. Bulletin 110 (July 1948): 56.
