From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1965: “Here is an iris with a much higher novelty rating than our picture is able to depict. The standards are a silky, translucent coppery brown with a pronounced crepy, lacy frill at the tips. The falls are a glistening opaque yellow-gold of startling richness, attracting attention from 30 feet away. Lacy tips of copper add a note of harmony to the golden falls. Iris are normally lighter in the standards and deeper in the falls, but Gay Lights reverses the customary contrast with striking effect. As a garden iris the popularity of Gay Lights seems assured. A clump of this gleaming novelty seems struck by shafts of sunlight.
