From AIS Bulletin #149, April 1958. Introducing FLUTED HAVEN-Very white, very fluted. Picture in October Bulletin, 1957. Stock very limited. $25.00. Reynolds.
From Knopf Iris Garden, 1965: FLUTED HAVEN 36" EM Reynolds'58. Gorgeous wide clean ruffled white self with F. fluted. One of the finest whites. 10.00
FLUTED HAVEN (Reynolds '58). Another superlatively fine white with extreme ruffling, fine substance, excellent form, and with sturdy well-branched stalks. A grand iris. It is a good performer, though perhaps of only average rapidity of increase. Ralph and Helen Lewis, "Irises We Liked", A.I.S. Bulletin 164 (Jan. 1962): 47.
FLUTED HAVEN was introduced by the Reynolds in 1958 and it became overnight a member of most "must have" lists in the country. Here is a wide, heavy-substanced lady with closed, ruffled standards and fluted falls (not ruffled), and a white beard, withal, a very finished flower-in fact, the features of the flower are the combination of finish and heavy fluting. I took no notes on the plant but I will try to fill in this year. I must meet this Reynolds lady-she has a good eye! Carey E. Quinn, “The Modern White Iris,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 166 (July 1962): 10.
