SAFFRON ROBE (Moldovan '68). "Again I must begin with color, for originality runs high here. Completely clean and smooth bright old gold or saffron yellow, with a lush beard of golden brown. Very well branched, three-way in arrangement, and proving to be a healthy grower. A totally distinct color that attracts from afar. Smooth in its arrangement and destined to be a fine cut flower as well as a garden scene-stealer. Like KINGDOM
, it wants to bloom too heavily." [Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society
, No. 196, (January 1970): 7.]
