See below:


From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: PROSPECTOR (Klein. 1950) M. 38 in. (Prince of Orange x K258). A medium yellow of flaring form with domed and conical standards. A white area on the falls highlights the flower. Lovely. A. M. 1953. 1.50.
From Cooley's Gardens catalog for 1950: "Deepest golden yellow . . . almost an orange . . . with the falls carrying a bold patch of clean ivory white. For combined depth of color and brilliance at the same time PROSPECTOR has no equal amongst the yellows. The amply large flowers are produced abundantly; they are well formed with widely flaring falls and closed standards. Height about 34-36 inches. Of the many first rate yellow Iris available these days there are none quite like this one."
