  • Please note that both written and illustrated sources account for
    - Victorine: pure amoena pattern
    - Mme Lémon: amoena pattern with blue flecks on standards
    Therefore, the iris called Victorine nowadays is actually Mme Lémon. One doesn't know when the confusion took place. 18 May 2021 -- PascalJordan
