| From Mrs. Ed Conrad (Idaho), “Way Beyond the Hills of Idaho” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 121, (April 1951): 35-36: "Another, entirely different, was a lovely, clear, rosy orchid with a light area around a perfect blockbuster tangerine beard and enhanced by a delightful fragrance. Tell has named this Sweet Marie. I am privileged to grow it this year and shall be able to observe with interest its performance in Idaho. Almost any of these many pink seedlings from crosses using Pink Formal were improvements over any of the named pinks in commerce today."
