WEST COAST (Knopf '68). "Promising, but not fully tested in our area. However, one-year tests show very favorable outlook. Once more one is hit with a dynamic color of the deepest golden yellow intensity, very uniform in its brightness, with a guarantee of no fading or bleaching. The petals are both ruffled and laced and displayed on a well-branched stem. Growth is very complimentary to date, a primary reason this class is holding the limelight these days. May possess detracting white lines near the beard and haft." [Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 196, (January 1970): 7-8.]
