Maytime was a pink amoena—it shows plainly that it is a child of Shannopin. (Shannopin has been one of my favorites since I saw a splendid clump of it in Jesse Wills' garden several years ago.) Reynolds, Mrs. Leo F., Tennessee (1949). Coming Events Cast Their Shadows, American Iris Society Bulletin 116 (January 1950), 30.
"Maytime, on a one-year plant, was well-branched and very luscious in color. It seemed darker than the published color plate, with a little more infusion of yellow in both standards and falls, giving the whole flower a warmer tone. The standards were slightly open, but seemed strong, and the falls were wide and rounded, with very little flare. How important it may be in amoena breeding remains to be seen, but it will be popular on color appeal alone." John Dolman, Jr. (Pennsylvania), “From Aldan to Walden and Points North, DeForest Plicatas Outstanding,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 16.
