Awaiting original catalog description
From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: GLAMOUR (Bliss 1922). This Dominion Seedling has all the good qualities of the parent-richness of color, heavy substance andfline form. In addition, it is strong and better branched in its growth and is particularly free flowering. The individual blooms are not quite as large as those of Moa or Titan but have great lasting quality and refinement. The broad and finely-arched standards are light lobelia-violet, shaded vinaceous buff at the edges; the falls rich, velvety blackish-purple, shading lighter at the borders; beard yellow-orange. 36 inches. $15.00 each.
From Bonnewitz catalog, 1926: GLAMOUR (Bliss) — Dominion Seedling $20.00. “S. heliotrope tinged pale ochre-yellow and shot lilac; F. pure rich red pansy violet. One of the best of the Dominion seedlings. While not quite as large as some of the other introductions, its splendid carriage, form and substance mark the Iris as valuable.”
