Full Description

TB M Y4L 40″

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1938: “Solid deep cream, but with an outpouring of rich, golden orange all about the central portion of the flower. This gives it a distinction so striking that it will be immediately singled out in a planting of hundreds of varieties. We saw this as a seedling in 1935 and regarded it as the finest un-introduced iris we saw that year. Produced by Robert Schreiner in St. Paul, Minn., it is most vigorous and grows to 40 inches tall.”
HM 1936, AM 1938.

From Quality Iris Gardens Catalog 1938 “M. 40″. A dainty new shimmering cream colored iris that eludes any description we can give it. The standards and falls are like cream colored silk ; the center is deep golden yellow which fades and blends into the falls. The flower has excellent substance,fine form and size and a well branched stem. My fellow grower has produced an iris which we are all proud to list.

From National Iris Gardens Catalog 1943 “A fine cream yellow given an AM”

From Marble Iris Gardens 1952:  “The color is a deep cream tone, with a rich golden outpouring about the center as though there was a golden light hidden there. The beard is a bright orange and the texture of the flowers is smooth and silky. The stems are nicely branched and it blooms freely.”
