|From Carl Salbach catalog 1936: Missouri. A very fine rich blue having a smooth, enamel-like finish. Highly praised in the Mid-West, and without uestion, one of the best new blue iris. Raised by a breeder who hns made a specialty of blue iris. Mid-season to late. $4.50.|
|From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1937: "Clear, clean blue, of sensational size. There has never been sufficient stock to supply the demand for this iris, declared by some observers to be the last word in its color."|
|Missouri (Grinter) --disappointing. G. L. Pilkington, "Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 74 (July 1939): 31.|
|Missouri: (Grinter). The most wonderful blue on cloudy days but shows a violet sheen in the sun. Well deserving of its award. Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 18.|
