References:

From Carl Salbach catalog 1941: SPUN GOLD. A new yellow offered for the first time in 1940. We hesitate to list any iris that we haven't seen in bloom, but we have had so many favorable reports that we decided to list it. The introducer describes it as "A golden yellow-the vibrancy and dash of brilliant shining gold". "Its bright, deep, pure gold tones unmarred by foreign color mark it as the last word in the yellows". Well-branched stems, good sized flowers. Mid-season. 38". $25.00.
