The description in Blyth's (aka Tempo Two's) '96-97 catalogue is:

(Blyth '93 Aust)  E-M 36"

A new colour combination much admired as a seedling and causing a lot of
comment with Iris breeders.  Standards are lavender to blue grey; falls are
greenish mustard with a slight tan overlay.  Beards are mustard.  Large full
ruffled blooms on well branched stems.  Easy grower.  Has given some
exciting second generation seedlings.

There is a photo of this on p49 of Graeme Grosvenor's book "Iris, Flower of
the Rainbow".
