"Monique (McKee) -not introduced. On the order of 'Pinnacle' but far superior. Beautifully domed pure white standards, large flaring falls slightly ruffled. Falls have a pale gold color, but when one looks closely the gold effect is produced by gold veining on white ground, forming a white edging as the gold fades out at the edge of the falls. Wonderful substance, should not be overlooked." [“Region 15, Varietal Comments,” Advertisement. The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 134 (July 1954): 72.]
