Talking about Louisiana Iris (Iris 'Wood Violet'), scvirginia wrote:

Description from Sidney's Conger's 1952 catalog of Louisiana Iris, p.12:
WOOD VIOLET. (Dormon, R., 1951). H. M., A. I. S., 1951. We are delighted to find this iris, long a favorite with us, having proper introduction. This iris is the shade of the deepest sky and just as bright and brilliant. Essentially of giganticaerulea form, it is placed on a low 30" stem, but the upright instead of flat flower has excellent proportions with this height. Excellent for a large rock garden or near a path. $5.00.
