From Fairmount Gardens catalog,1962:TIDELANDS 57-12A (Buttrick 1962) M.L. Clarity of color and perfection of form are united in this beautiful iris that is a self of Bluebird Blue 042/1. The standards are broadly domed and firmly held by the strong midrib and are very ruffled. The flaring falls are wide at the haft and have the same ruffling as the standards. The flower is an absolute self to the very heart of the bloom except for the clear white beard. The many flowers have firm, heavy substance and are carried on four way branching stalks. Thoroughly hardy and a good grower. Galilee x (Bluebird Blue x 54-1A). 35 in. $20.00
TIDELANDS (Buttrick '62) We saw this splendid medium-to-dark blue iris for the first time in the Moldovan garden and ordered it on sight. Excellent in every way; it particularly impressed us with its blueness. [Ralph and Helen Lewis, “Iris from the Carolinas to Iowa and Ohio,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 87.]
