|"A native of the western Himalayas. A very fine plant, which I have not seen in English gardens at the present day. It was described and figured by Lindley from specimens sent home by Dr. Royle. My own notes were taken on living specimens sent from Germany by Herr Leichtlin. The single wild specimen I have seen was gathered by Jacquemont in grassy woods in Kashmir. Its general habit is just that of ochroleuca, but the flower is much deeper in colour."|
| Described under the name Iris aurea Lindl. By Baker in The Gardeners' Chronicles p. 584, Nov. 4, 1876.
Bakers description reads "Rhizome stout, oblique. Stem stout, terete, 3-3 ½ feet high, with several reduced leaves, and about two sessile flowers, in addition to the terminal one. Leaves 1 ½--2 feet long, ¾--1 inch broad, ensiform, hardly glaucous. Spathes two-flowered, composed of two tight-clasping lanceolate valves, 3-4 inches long. Pedicel 1-1 ½ inch long inside the spathe; ovary cylindrical, 1 inch long, deeply sulcate; tube about as long as the ovary, dilated suddenly at the top; limb 2 ½ --3 ½ inches deep, bright yellow; blade of the falls oblong, crisped at the edge, under 1 inch broad, equalling the claw in length; standards oblanceolate, shorter than the falls, under 1 inch broad. Stigmas 1 ¼--1 ½ inch long, excluding the deltoid crests. Anther longer than the ligulate filament."
