From Carl Salbach iris catalog, 1938: SEDUCTION (Cayeux). A splendid new plicata from France that has lived up to its advance reports. As unusual as any plicata we have ever seen. Large and of good form. it is completely distinct from both the Mitchell giant plicatas and Spring Cloud, the new Stafford Jory origination. The growth, size of bloom, and fine branching habit of these other plicatas is present in Seduction, but the flowers have veinings and stitchings of lilac, rather than of blue. Ground color, white. Late. 44-inch. A.M., A.I.S., 1937. $4.00.
