From Cornell Bulletin 112: Color effect a flecked yellow, velvety pansy violet veined bicolor. Standards amber yellow flecked raisin purple. Falls velvety blackish red-purple, veined violet-purple on lavender outer haft and reticulated red-brown on bronzed base. The blade is bordered light yellow. The plant is a vigorous grower, with stiff, medium, deep green foliage, tinged at the base. The spathe valves are green and slightly keeled. The flowers are borne on widely-branched stalks, and the segments of the blooms expand so that the general effect is that of a short, open bloom with cup-formed standards. Under some circumstances, Fall blooms appear. Their bright colors make interesting masses in the border. Rating 79.
From H. P. Simpson catalog, 1922: LORELEY (G. & K., about 1909) S. light yellow; F. ultramarine bordered with cream. Good grower and striking contrasts. 30 inches 25¢.
