| From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: MARY BARNETT (Cumbler 1926). This fine new Iris, grown by Mrs.M. A. Cumbler, has attracted the attention of keen Iris critics for several seasons. It has been thoroughly tested and has proved its worth as a free-blooming, vigorous and reliable flower. It is best described as being a Princess Beatrice with a glorious golden beard, so brilliant that it reflects throughout the flower. We are glad to be able to offer this fine Iris. $10.00 each.
| From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: MARY BARNETT (Cumbler 1926) M. 39". A greatly glorified Princess Beatrice with a golden beard so brilliant that the reflection pervades the whole bloom. We have seen something like a half dozen different varieties which were called the “true Princess Beatrice”. This Iris, in our opinion, is superior to any of them. The exquisite, lustrous pale blue of this variety cannot be surpassed. We feel safe in saying that practically every list of the ten best Iris of American origin, would have to include Mary Barnett. We have accumulated a large stock and can make a remarkably low price to our customers. We strongly recommend it. $2.00.
