| From Robert Wayman, "Best Twenty-five Irises", The Flower Grower, Oct 1925: PARISIANA: While this is a moderate priced variety, until recent years it stood in a class entirely by itself. There are now some newer varieties of similar type, but it remains to be seen whether they are better. PARISIANA has a white ground dotted and striped with deep lilac.
| From H. P. Simpson catalog, 1922: PARISIANA (Vilmorin, 1911) — S. white, heavily dotted lilac-purple; F. while, frilled at edge with lilac. A flower of unusual coloring and worthy of a place in any collection. Odd and yet pleasing. 27-30 inch. 35c.
