From G. G. Whiteleggs catalog, 1921: TITAN. The largest of all the "Dominion" race . Enormous flowers with spreading falls, of very great substance so that the flowers in spite of their size stand stiff and erect to the last. Arching standards, 3in. broad, of light violet-blue. Broad smooth falls of violet-purple, deeper in the centre of the blade and with conspicuous reticulations on white at the haft. Very strong plant with broad thick leaves and massive stems; stiff and wide branching spikes, very free flowering. Height about 3 ft.; this is by far the most striking and magnificent Iris which has so far been seen in cultivation .
