From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: TRUE GOLD (Austin '61) VE-E-38". If you like my Real Gold you'll simply love my new True Gold, for it is a much earlier, much taller & much more flaring flower in almost the same unique true gold color, rather than yellow. While Real Gold came from Golden Majesty X Capitola, this descends from Palomino X Joppa Parrot, wh1ch accounts fully for the unmistakable "Onco look." While most derivatives of Joppa Parrot are short, True Gold produces an abundance of tall stalks, 36" to 40" high. Usually 3 flowers out at once at different heights. Thus a clump makes an exceedingly colorful sight in true gold coloring, before any Tall Bearded are out. Falls nicely rounded. Beard heavy, bright orange. Pollen plentiful. With parents as famous as they come, & with these attributes, it should be a superb breeder's Iris, too. Regularly $5.00; on $15 order 2 for $4.50; on $25 order 3 for $3.95.
