From Indian Spring Farms catalog, 1927: OLIVER PERTHUIS (Millet 1921). A medium-sized flower on the order of Mme. Gaudichau. S. manganese-violet; F. velvety pansy-violet; haft and styles edged amber. A plant of vigorous growth with stems strong and well branched, free flowering. $1.50 each.
From Bonnewitz catalog, 1926: OLIVER PERTHUIS (Millet) $2.50. The name of this variety is sometimes given as O. Perthuis, and at other times as M. Perthuis. In 1923 it gave us bloom of such splendid size and quality that we thought it was almost in a class with Dominion, but we were greatly disappointed in the bloom the next year, for it did not show the same high quality nor splendid size. We will give it close attention this year. S. lavender-mauve; F. purplish-lilac.
