From Carl Salbach catalog 1939: AIDA (Mitchell 1938). (Yellow seedling X King Midas). Named for the beautiful dusky heroine of Verdi's famous opera Aida, this iris combines delightful form with rich bronzy coloring. The standards are golden bronze, the falls showing a darker tint, as of tobacco. Entirely distinct from those of the Jean Cayeux type, being more on the copper shades than those of the latter. Appropriately named, for it is a most attracttve, beautiful iris. Standards pure rich frosted bronze with a fine glint; falls, rich copper bronze. Altogether a very live colored variety, very pleasing, and completely distinct. Large flowers, heavy substance, good placement and a free bloomer. Mid-season. 36-inch. $5.00.
