| SEASIDE (0. Brown '67). The quality of this huge, very ruffled flax blue is paralleled with its WINTER OLYMPICS and GALILEE lineage. Again we have form of impeccable balance and symmetry and a variety whose tall, husky stalks guarantee much success as a landscape scene. Not as tested here or fully observed to date, but an iris with so much vigor and favorable indications thus far, I felt it must be mentioned. In my garden SEASIDE outclasses all blues for growth and rapid increase-A sure Award of Merit winner for Mrs. Tom Brown. Roger R. Nelson, “Your More Music Survey,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 197 (April 1970): 9.]
| SEASIDE has all good qualities to match the loveliness of its light blue flowers. It is no wonder this one was one of three which won an AM for Opal Brown in 1970. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 12.]
