References:

From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: CANDY STRIPE (Marx 1954) Each 5.00. A color pattern of sharpest contrast and exceptional brilliance highlights this gay sparkling plicata. The illustration is remarkably true to color and portrays the elegant ruffling and perfect placement of the blooms on ideally branched stems. The large flowers are very showy and more eye catching in the garden than any other plicata we know. Each plant is in bloom for several weeks. Truly an iris with lots of personality andverve. See page 28.
