From AIS Bulletin #261 April 1986 Introducing HEAVEN'S SHORE-HC in '85. Finally, a bit of lace on a blue TB with excellent form-short, wide petals and super ruffling. And, three wellplaced branches hold seven buds on 31" stalks. A bright self in a clean, clear light blue, with a hint of violet. #28-1: Butterscotch Trim X Charisrna. $25.00. Gaddies' Garden.
"Another pleasant surprise, and a major advancement in breeding, was HEAVEN'S SHORE (Gaddie '86), seen at Melrose under Seedling # 8-1. This child of CHARISMA retained its parent's excellent plant habits and branching, but is much bluer and more smoothly, heavily laced." [Perry Dyer (Oklahoma), “Melrose Gardens” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 263, (October 1986): 21.]
