From AIS Bulletin #249, April 1983 Introducing JOHNNY G-Very attractive yellow amoena, clean contrast, very good form. Can rebloom as early as August; usually Sept. (October Sun X Earl). $35.00. Avonbank Iris Gardens.
From Avonbank Bank Gardens catalog for 1984: "This is my best yellow amoena to date, very clean in its contrast of white standards and primrose yellow falls. The branching is also very good. It is fertile either way. It was the only rebloomer and the best flower in its cross of some 130 plants, a welcome and unusual combination. (Named for John William Grossman of Ft. Pearce, Florida)."
