NEW MOON (Sexton '68). "As viewed and studied for two years, the premio thing to date in yellows. This has so very much going for it that a serious fault cannot be listed to date. Huge, beautifully formed flowers of bright, clear medium yellow in a complete self. Substance, vigor, and stem are unchallenged and further the very longest season of bloom with each flower lasting three days or more. A giant leap forward in yellows." [Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society
, No. 196, (January 1970): 8.]
