Awaiting original catalog description.
From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1957: HIGH SPOT (Hopson '56). A most exciting new iris! We are sure it will cause a sensation when it is seen more. Very wide tailored form; flaring falls and heavy substance-but the COLOR-the softest pinky buff throughout, not in the least wishy-washy, but quietly definite. The Hopsons practically sold out of this before it was named at the 1956 Convention. ON DISPLAY.
