See below:


From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1938: NARAIN (Shuber 1936) A distinctive blue iris of fine form and silken finish. The flowers are large and flaring, the creamy throat, and yellow beard tipped blue add greatly to the beauty of the flower. 38in. $5.00.
To say that Narain is true indigo blue should be sufficient recommendation, but the added report of fine form, early bloom, lustrous sheen and an opulence which compares with Gudrun's should place this blue-bearded beauty on every "must have" list. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 59.
