"Eight other flowers received awards at the show but none of these here impressed me especially Mr. Perry's new yellow Iris, 'G.P.Baker'. This is somewhat on the order of Flavescens in tone and form, although possibly deeper. While its color, form and texture did not appeal to me especially, as it appeared somewhat coarse, yet it was remarkable on account of the size of its spike and its branching quality; the spike had three branches, each fully as large as the usual Iris stalk. I regret that I did not count the number of flowers fully open on this candelabra-like spike, of which there was only one, but there must have been at least a dozen."–Franklin B. Mead, p28 AIS Bulletin #38, January 1931.
