Awaiting original catalog description.
MARIE PHILLIPS (Muhlestein '63) An absolute self of clear pure wisteria violet with a self beard. Such uniformity of coloring is amazing. Flower form is close to perfection; standards are tight, falls flare gracefully and are wide and well formed; ruffling is just what one would desire. A breathtaking beauty that has drawn so much favorable comment. [Ralph and Helen Lewis, "Iris from the Carolinas to Iowa and Ohio,"Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 89.]
