Eva Sloan, Miss Eva Faught's 55K-1, was one of the outstanding things I saw this year. It is a very lovely lemon colored iris with a darker band around the falls and standards. It is exquisitely shaped, huge in size and a fine stalk and will undoubtedly become very popular. [Waters, Don (1952). Random Comment, American Iris Society Bulletin 128(January 1953), 51-52.]
