GLEAMING GOLD (Roberts '66) must surely be the brightest thing in the garden-literally leaping at you. A bright yellow bitone--with the falls 'of pure glittering gold. You'll like it-and, for your arrangers-this is a dandy. It's the "gold" iris those schedules so often call for. [Carol Ramsey, “Standard Dwarfs---1969,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 194 (July 1969): 68.]
