From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing SPRING BELLS-M197-7 (Pamela Ann x Merry Sunlight). This pastel yellow sib to Cotton Blossom has form and poise comparable to that variety. Cream yellow self with gold stitching around the beard. A most desirable standard dwarf iris. 12". HC 1971. $5.00. Bennett Jones.
SPRING BELLS (Jones '72)-This cream-yellow sib to Cotton Blossom showed itself to be a delightful addition to the standard dwarfs. It carries a somewhat larger flower than Cotton Blossom but is identical in form to that variety. [Joe Gatty, “A Median Review,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 55, No. 214 (July 1974): 55.]
