| From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1955: VIOLET GRACE (E. B. Wadland). E.-M. (Violet Symphony x Gloriole.) According to the Wilson color chart this is aster violet, plate 38. Actually the flowers are similar in coloring to Pinafore Lass since both have the white area in the falls, but Violet Grace is a perfect flower, very wide, ruffled and heavily substanced. Fertile both ways, its pollen is the first ever to give me takes on Pinafore Lass. Having been produced in Canada it is vigorous and winter-hardy. The 7-inch blooms stand up to all weather and are nicely spaced on 36 to 40-inch stalks. $20.00
| From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: VIOLET GRACE (Wadland 1955) E. M. 36 in. (Violet Symphony x Gloriole). A new Canadian origination of medium Aster Violet with large blaze of white around the beard. The flowers are large, broad pataled and very heavy of substance. Both the standards and the falls are nicely ruffled. H. M. 1955. 18.00.
