washed out compared to the first. I have never seen this iris

The Schreiner's 1934 catalog has it in their '1934 Introductions'

highly arched, falls are large, ovate and flaring. This is a hardy 
and exceptionally fine garden iris which will be equally as effective 
on the show table......................$10.00"

1939 Check List -- PARTHENON. TB-M-WW (Con. 1934);....
