From AIS Bulletin #189, April 1968 Introducing GALA MADRID (Les Peterson). M-L. 30". MAIN EVENT X GYPSY LULLABY. Looks like a picture of MILESTONE in Plough's catalogue. Standards butterscotch-gold, falls wine-red with half-inch brownish red border; small blue flash below deep yellow beard.Described by Joe Ghio, page 29, AIS Bulletin Oct. '67. HC '66 and '67. Makes small rhizomes. Fertile both ways. Net $35.00. Tell's Iris Garden.
GALA MADRID was first seen without a label when it was guested for the 1968 National. It impressed us as the best guest we previewed in 1967. Our strong belief in this iris has only been reinforced since. Brilliant gold standards and blended violet and red falls. On paper the colors sound clashing, but they don't clash when you see it. The bloom is not as large as some. [Joe Ghio, “The Eye of the Beholder,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 43.]
 
GALA MADRID is a bright bicolor with enough buds to keep it blooming for a long period of time and enough other good qualities to offset the fact that it is sometimes a bit short. It is the most brilliantly colored iris in its color class. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 13.]

  • TB Gala Madrid was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately May 30 - June 4, in 2017; it was a very small clump. I didn't see any Purple Based Foliage at the base of the leaves, but there was purple coloring on the spathes. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 24 Aug 2017
