From Maple Valley Iris Gardens catalog, 1937: WINNESHIEK (Egelberg 1931) M. 40 in. An unusually beautiful dark iris that appeals strongly to everyone. There is no other similar enough to become confused with its deep tone of blue purple, set off by a narrow border of Bishop’s purple. Of extra large size, heavy substance and rich velvety texture. Standards and falls are broad, full and waved. The stalk is well branched and the plant very hardy and free flowering. Always a best seller. 50c.
From Hill Iris catalog, 1932: WINNESHIEK (Egelberg, 1930). An extremely velvety blue purple, slightly bluer than Germaine Perthuis with more velvety texture and more solid color in the falls. Large flowers. $10.00.
WINNESHIEK (11) is another excellent one of this sort. It is larger and taller than 'BLACK WINGS', and is distinctive because of the lighter border surrounding its falls. [Wills, Jesse, (1943). Older Iris I would Buy Again, American Iris Society Bulletin, 89(April 1943), 14.]
