From AIS Bulletin #212 January 1974 Introducing STAR SPANGLED 36", M-L. Sprinkled generously with glittering gold dust, this blazing yellow reads: Stands yellow-orange (14A) deepening at base. Falls yellow-orange (21A) lightening slightly in center area. Beard, near orange (24A). Wide, lightly ruffled petals. Conic stands. Arched flaring falls. Large flowers on strong well-branched stalks, with a minimum of 8 buds. (Royal Gold X (Orange Parade x G. Amber)). No. H67-12A. HC '73. $25.00. Mission Bell.
"The brilliant yellow gold of STAR SPANGLED was heightened by its orange beard. This one seemed to have super substance, and will be one of the outstanding introductions of 1974." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday.” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society #208 (January 1973):15.]
