| SILVERGILT (Wills 1962) M. For many years Mr. Wills has been deeply interested in the breeding of yellow and white amoerras and has raised many seedlings. This one meets the high standard he has set before sponsoring an introduction. Silvergilt is a decided improvement in color, form and substance. It is a good grower and has good sized flowers with excellent contrast between the white standards and the smooth yellow falls. A most attractive iris that does not wilt or fade in adverse weather. This comes from a long line of breeding and it is very valuable not only for its color and beauty, but for the great possibilities to those that are interested in this line of breeding. Pollen is fertile and it will set seeds. (Mystic Melody x Soft Answer) x (Pinnacle x Soft Answer). 35 in. $20.00. Fairmount Gardens, Lowell, Massachusetts. Iris Catalog 1962.
