From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1953: WINGS 0F SONG, Whiting 1953. No. 4666 (((MATULA X MIDWEST GEM) X (PURISSIMA X MATULA X GILT EDGE). Midseason to late, 34 inches. A bright yellow and white iris with a delightful personality. The happy result of several generations of careful breeding for a pleasing pattern in these colors, with the added charm of ruffled edges. The firm, closely domed standards are of pure dandelion yellow, lightly ruffled. The widely flaring falls are pure white with a wide heavily ruffled border of the same brilliant yellow. The well branched stalks carry 7 to 9 bloom buds in graceful alignment. The plants are hardy, prolific and free flowering. It has been much admired and photographed by visitors to our garden and was given an H. C. (#4666) in 1950. $15.00.
