From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1949: CASCADE SPLENDOR (Kleinsorge) The predominating color of this fine iris is an apricot tan, but the whole flower is flushed with a pinkish wash which is somewhat more pronounced along the edges of the falls and the top of the standards. The shape is waxy, not stiff, the branching and substance excellent. 3 feet. $6.00; 3 for $15.00.
From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1944: "Very large ruffled pink, tan and apricot blend, with extra heavy stalk 40 inches tall and bearing up to ten flowers. The ruffling is more pronounced than in any Iris we have ever introduced and is most unusual in so large an Iris. It blooms quite late."
