From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1964: LAVISH LADY (Buttrick) One of the very TOP favorites around here. A luxuriant light orchid lavender self, very wide of parts, ruffled and a dream of graceful elegance. HM'54-Why this never got the Award of Merit is a question only the Gods of the iris judges could answer. Still good. 3.00.
From Fairmount catalog, 1955: LAVISH LADY (Buttrick 1954) M. The name is most descriptive of this winsome lady for it is a very lavishly ruffled flower of Sea lavender violet that is delicate, yet fresh in color and is most effective in the garden. An iris that is difficult to portray for it has a delectable mauve coloring that is not in any measure described by the color chart, it must be seen to visualize the beauty of this lovely flower. The large broad, well spaced blooms with firm substance, make it an iris of unusual charm and refinement. I know of nothing quite like it in the light violet tone, and it has been admired by Judges and garden visitors for its exceptional distinction. H. C. A. I. S. 1952. H. M. A. I. S. 1954.
