Full Description

TB 34″ EM

From Lloyd Austin’s Iris Color Guidebook for 1962: “Has been winning awards ever since ’56 when it topped the HC’s. Described as the most beautifully formed and very cleanest lemon yellow & white combination in the Iris World. Standards canary yellow, falls outlined with a wide band of yellow. A much sought newcomer that is just becoming plentiful enough for inclusion in everyone’s garden.”

(Harvester X Mitchell 4-7), HM 1958.
