Full Description

TB 30″ M Y4D

From Rene Cayeux’s catalog for 1939: “I have r(a)ised in the past some magnificent yellow Irises. This variety, vigorous, well branched surpass all by the intensity and the neatness of the pur(e) yellow colour and the perfect form of the flower. We can affirm that it is the best looking Iris at date. Height 2½ ft.”
