From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: ANNETTE (Hall 1955) Each 7.50. The blending of colors in the new irises is as inexhaustible as it is fascinating. In ANNETTE we have a tawny deep rose suffused throughout with a coppery cast while the center is all aglow with a brilliant red beard. The almost flat, widely flaring falls are flung out like the abandoning pose of a dance. Quite a different Iris. 34 inches.
From Iris Test Garden catalog, 1958: ANNETTE. (Hall, 1955). A tawny deep rose with widely flaring, almost flat, falls. The entire flower carries a coppery cast but the center is all aglow with the brilliant red beards. Quite different from other Hall things. 34 inches tall. $5.00
