From AIS Bulletin #317 April 2000 Introducing VEGAS WEEKEND (H. Nichols) TB 34" M-L Plentiful stock allows us to release this much sought after iris. It has been seen at several past conventions and received rave reviews. Well branched and multi-budded, ruffled golden yellow flowers have bushy gold beards. There is a small white area under the beards. One that is a bit short, but this little fault is easily overlooked by everyone who has seen and appreciated this iris. Fertile both ways.
