References:

From Kenwood Iris Gardens catalog 1933: THEODOLINDA (Ayres-Emig. 1932)—42". A plicata of Los Angeles size, and of positive hardihood and vigor. It might be called a glorified Rose Salterne, as it has the clear colored reticulations that make Salterne distinct, but there comparison ceases. The flowers measure 6 V 4 inches in length. The broad, domed standards are white with a buttonhole stitching of light blue along the margins. The falls are kid-like in texture, broad and straight hanging, with deep blue violet markings at the center, changing to clear blue at the edge. It has Dominion substance, and the stems branch widely. $17.50.
From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: THEODOLINDA (Ayres 1932) M. 42 in. Very large tall hardy plicata with deep blue markings. $1.50.
