"One very fascinating one named Lady Louise had interesting buds of olive yellow with a strong midrib of lime green. This one shows its ruffling even in the folded bud. The standards are Colonial Buff, roundly domed and ruffled at the edges. The falls are white with an even border of Colonial Buff, widening each side of the orange yellow beard. The center of the fall has a pearly iridescent flush and the flower is carried on a well branched 44 in. stalk." Mrs. Otto Steutzel, “After the Ball Was Over,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 103 (October 1946): 10-11.
LADY LOUISE (Graves 1947) M. L. Distinctive in both color and pattern, the large, broad ruffled standards of Colonial buff (Ridgway) are roundly domed and firmly held by the very strong midrib. The falls are iridescent white with a clear fluted border of Colonial buff, widening each side of the orange beard, and blending in to the slightly deeper buff of the styles. The fascinating buds are an added attraction with their olive yellow coloring contrasting strongly with the Lime green midrib, and showing plainly the ruffling of the flowers even in the folded buds. Firm substanced flowers, four way branching stalks. H. M., A. I. S. 1947. 44 in. 3 for $5.00, $2.00. Fairmount catalog, 1958.
