See below:


From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: ENVOY (De Forest 1948) Each 1.50. Impressive and dignified, this dark, glossy descendant of ETHIOP QUEEN is one of the most deeply colored newer iris. The standards shine bright and silky in the sunlight with a flush of reddish purple about them, while the falls are practically black with a hint of brown-purple to lend them richness. Against the solid blackish haft, the brilliant orange beard is like a cord of gold on black velvet. Borne on erect 34inch stems.
ENVOY (DeForest, 1948) Each $9.00. Among the most deeply colored of new Irises, the falls practically black but with a hint of brown-purple. The beard is brilliant orange on a solid blackish haft. Standards are bright and silky with a flush of reddish purple. A very impressive thing on 34-inch stems. Illustrated on page 12. Cooley's Iris catalog 1952.
