|From Glen Road Iris Gardens catalog, 1927: CANDLELIGHT (Andrews 1926) Of Caterina type with Afterglow colorings, bluer toward the tips of the standards and falls. Most lovely, tall and graceful, flowers large, growth vigorous; 3 to 4 ft. 10.00.|
|From Quality Gardens catalog 1931: CANDLELIGHT (Andrews 1926) L. 48". Large flowers of pinkish lavender illuminated from within by a rich golden glow; at once difficult to describe, but very lovely. The glow extends to the tips of the standards and falls, with just enough contrast to give a soft color effect. The plant is tall, and with us has been a vigorous grower. It rated higher than any variety in the last Symposium, and its popularity increases from year to year, as it becomes better known. $2.00.|
