From the Introductory 1941 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: An easy-to-grow Onocyclus hybrid. About three-fourths the size of Wm. Mohr, it has more delicate dottings and markings and these colorings are on a purer white background. The standards are light blue in effect while the falls are delicately pinkish. It is larger and can be visualized as improved Some Love and for us up north it has the happy faculty of being an easy grower. The flower is daintily ruffled. It arises from a cross of the Oncocyclus hybrid Sylphyde, itself a hybrid of (Gatesii x Lortetii), crossed with the bearded variety Midwest. The flower stalk has two branches, unusual for a pogo-cyclus.
