SANDIA is another iris which somehow was overlooked in the beginning so that it never got an award, though it is better than many which did. It is a smoky-pink with a suggestion of salmon about it; a good, well-formed flower on a good stalk that can be depended upon to bloom every year. [Wills, Jesse, (1943). Older Iris I Would Buy Again, American Iris Society Bulletin, 89(April 1943), 14.]
