See below:


From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: HARLEQUIN (Stevens 1949) M. L. 34 in. Plicata sdlg. x Tiffany). A mammoth, flaring flower that is a real eye catcher. Ground color is cream with all over flushing and stippling of rosy chocolate brown. 1.50.
From Schreiners 1957 catalog: An Iris that looks like an Oncocyclus hybrid. The heavy silvery falls with perky horizontal flare are not only veined like a butterfly's wing but bizaarely stippled and dappled chocolate and purple to match the feathery standards-exotic.
