From Fairmount Gardens, 1955: JAN HESS (Watkins-Graves 1955) M. Blue iris in varying shades are always welcome for they are needed to lighten up the color pattern of any garden. This one seems practically without competition in its special class. A broadly formed medium blue bitone that has a deeper coloring than Helen McGregor, Jane Phillips and Kiki. The broad well held standards are Sea Blue (043 / 3} and the flaring falls are darker but in the same general color tone. Firm substanced blooms well spaced on widely branching stalks. Highly praised by many iris Judges that have been waiting for its introduction. Pollen fertile and sets seed pods well. 39 in. $20.00
Jan Hess (Graves) Very broadly-formed medium-blue. Deeper and richer in color than Helen McGregor, Jane Phillips and Kiki, it seemed to me a very stunning thing. [Buttrick, Stedman (1952). Region One Report, American Iris Society Bulletin 128(January 1953), 47.]
