From Schreiner’s catalog, 1953: HALOLIGHT (Schreiner 1953) L. 42". A mellifluous blend of golden buff and subtle apricot shot with a radiance of pure gold. As our engraver will testify, see right, HALOLIGHT beautifully exemplifies the aristocratic bearing of a finely-bred iris, opulence of form and perfection of branching leaving little to be desired. Truly an ideal garden subject. No.!G332A. $20.00.
From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: HALO LIGHT (Schreiner 1953). Each 7.50. The introducer's description of this fascinating color as a "mellifluous blend of golden buff and subtle apricot shot with a radiance of pure gold" is not mere verbosity. The blend is indeed smooth as flowing honey and radiant as, we imagine, halos to be. Add to that the aristocratic bearing of the well-bred iris, its opulence of form and perfection of branching, and you have a flower from the upper strata of the iris world. Late blooming, fully 42 inches tall.
