| From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: NARADA (Brehm 1939) - Purissima x (El Capitan x Bruno) - Described in the A. I. S. bulletin as a clear blue El Capitan, this huge new iris bids fair to make a real mark among other iris. This fine new variety owes its outstanding quality to three factors - (1) Its huge size; (2) Its clear, light blue color; (3) Its fine airy, flaring fallform - with all three being equally important. In all these features, it outranks El Capitan, Buechley Giant,and other similar varieties, and it at least equals them in all other points. Hardy without protection in its creator's Seattle garden. Late. 40-inch. $15.00.
| From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1942: NARADA (Brehm 1939) Late. One of the largest blue iris, but not at all coarse. It is of fine form and beautiful poise with the standards a shade lighter than the broad flaring falls. A real stand out in the blues. R 87 1941. 40 in. $5.00
