| Awaiting original catalog description
| JUBILESTRA (Grinter 1937) M. 38". A perfect yellow self. The texture resembles pure yellow taffeta , seemingly fragil but stands up better than most of the heavy textured kinds. The beard is the same shade as the flower. The branching is good and the flowers well placed. (Originator's note : .. A Pluie D'Or seedling, but the pollen parent is not of the iris family. A close observation of the blossom discloses that the texture, stamens, etc., are different. Jubilestra is only part iris.") $20.00. [Quality Gardens Catalog, 1937. Mrs. Douglas Pattison, Freeport, Illinois]
| Jubilesta: (Grinter). There are many yellows so much better, can't see why this was introduced. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 17.]
