Full Description

TB M Y9M

From Rene Cayeux’s catalog for 1939: “A very attractive flower, quite a bicolor of striking apparence. S. wide golden yellow. F. reddish mauve, lighter on the margins; branching spikes 3½ feet bearing 6-8 blooms expended at (a) time.”

From Carl Salbach’s catalog for 1939: “Distinct and effective, one of the very finest new French irises, somewhat on the order of Day Dream, but on more slender, graceful stalks. A most enchanting iris whose exquisite color tones are hard to describe. Standards of golden yellow, and falls a blending of gold and pinkish mauve. An elegant iris, refreshingly different.”

From Oakhurst Gardens catalog for 1939: “S. wide, golden yellow; F. plum-red, softer at edges. A very striking blend and a profuse bloomer. 36 in.”
