"Melba Hamblen's ROSECRAFT ('86) was impressive as a rather muted version of her brilliant, very fine EXTRAVAGANT ('83). Wide, laced blossoms were well presented on shorter, thick stalks with two to three well-spaced branches." [Perry Dyer (Oklahoma), “Melrose Gardens”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 263, (October 1986): 21.]
