References:

From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: MIOGEM (McKee 1947) M. A most unusual blend of wine, Fuchsia red, and blue intermingled with brownish tones, giving a bright iridescent effect that is very fascinating. The standards are a blending of Fuchsia red and China rose (Maerz and Paul) with a greenish midrib holding them firmly closed. The flaring falls are a deeper shade of Fuchsia and China rose, broad and full at the hafts, with a blue blaze at the base of the orange beard, and a ribbon ruffle of brown edging the falls. Full flowers of very firm texture, well placed on four way branching stalks. H . C., A. I. S. 1945. H. M., A. I. S. 1947. 36 in. $15.00.
MIOGEM (McKee) "A good "smoky". Wine and brown-red and gray-purple intermingled with a blue blaze on the fall. It does not have a bright color but it is still interesting. It is an excellent grower and doer with fine branching." [Jesse E. Wills (Tennessee), “Varietal Comment, Irises Seen in Nashville” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 70.]
