From Salbach catalog, 1940: MISS MUFFET (Salbach 1940). (Dauntless x Dykes) (Wm. Mohr x Ibmacrantha). The pollen parent is in itself unusual and interesting, a somewhat larger Wm. Mohr. The seed parent is a very large yellow and is responsible the large creamy white standards and the yellow cast in the falls. The color in the falls is a shade of greenish yellow with markings of rosy purple. The blooms are large, plants make a good growth and fairly rapid increase. The blooms give pollen freely. Last season we made several crosses using this pollen, and now have about twenty seedlings. Early. 20". $5 00.
From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: MISS MUFFET (Salbach '40) E 20" (Dauntless X W. R. Dykes) X (Wm. Mohr X Ib-Mac). An odd rather than beautiful flower. The standards are pale violet veined in brown and the falls are of chartreuse-yellow with a slight marbling of purple. Not an easy parent although we have had it pollenize 'Appointee'. $.75
