ee below:



JASMANIA (Ayres 1935) M. 42". A tall deep yellow of unusual hue. The flowers are large and jauntily poised on the stalk. The falls are broad and semi-flaring and are lightly touched pale brown on the haft and have a slight touch of lavender blue in the center. One of the best looking varieties we have had in a long time. Jasmania is the name of a fete in India where all participating wear yellow costumes. $25.00. [1937 Quality Gardens catalog.
Jasmania: (Ayres). This flower has good substance and deep yellow coloring but this year showed some brownish spots in the falls. A fine iris nevertheless. Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.
I planned to discard Jasmania because of its narrow haft and its falls, smudged and flecked like a ripe banana, but it was so strongly defended by all garden visitors that I'll probably keep it, after all. The round, closed standards are the most glittering, golden yellow. [Lila McCombs, “A Critical Evaluation of Older Irises”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 57.]
