From Cornell Bull. 112: Color effect a light yellow self. Standards martius yellow. falls napthalene yellow, faintly veined olive-buff. The beard is fine, dense yellow. This variety is a moderately vigorous grower and has stiff, broad foliage which supports the numerous, high, short-branched flower stalks. The blooms are fair sized, sweet scented, and admirable for early cut flowers. Being one of the older sorts and floriferous, this variety is still recommended for mass plantings. Rating 70.
From H. P. Simpson catalog, 1922: FLAVESCENS (Europe, before 1830). Both standards and falls are soft yellow; wonderfully delicate, and of good size and growth. One of the older yellows that still retains its hold on the iris public. 30-32 inch. 20¢
