| The most brilliant flower in the garden is SON OF STAR. Bright orange from a distance, this is actually an orange with much yellow in the falls. It increases very quickly but if you must have perfectly smooth color you may not like it, since the color seems a little coarse. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 11.]
