(Hans Peter Sass
, R. 1938) TB, Midseason to late bloom. Color Class-Y8D reverse. Height 38". Slight fragrance. From yellow plicata seedlings. Honorable Mention 1940; Award of Merit 1942.
BALMUNG is an imposing iris, handsomely broad-petaled and full, and the marking is confined to a definite, relatively narrow margin along the edges of both standard and fall. I consider it and colorful 'RUTH POLLOCK' the finest iris in their class. [Schreiner, Robert (1943). The Evolution of our Yellow Plicatas. American Iris Society Bulletin, 88(January 1943), 60.]
