Awaiting original catalog description
RIPPLING WATERS (Fay '61). "The most beautiful blended orchid, pink and cream capped with a bold red beard. Beautifully ruffled and laced fonn and a fine stem. Commanding in a clump and serene in the living room vase. Has so many fine qualities that it can be faulted only in its tendency to produce smaller type flowers, due to certain winter weather conditions. Still one of the most dependable Dykes Medalists in recent years." [Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 196, (January 1970): 8.
