From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: REAL GOLD (Austin '52) M 20" (Golden Majesty X Capitola). While not large or tall, we were quite impressed with the beautiful golden buff color of this Iris whose falls are broad and flaring and enhanced with soft brown veins. The originator says it yields good pollen. $8.00
From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1956: REAL GOLD (Austin '51) 24". From Golden Majesty X Capitola, this hybrid is said to be the nearest to real gold yet produced. The standards are glistening gold-buff. Falls deep gold-buff, with soft brown veins and golden bronze beard. $6.00
From Fleur de Lis Gardens catalog 1956: REAL GOLD (Austin 1951) E. M. 34 in. (Golden Majesty x Capitola). A new oncobred of great beauty. The large flowers carry the usual onco form and styling. Standards are glistening golden buff and the falls are deep golden buff, with a network of soft brown veins. 6.00.
From Melrose Gardens catalog 1965: REAL GOLD (Austin) Not a yellow but a color that will come closer to a true gold color than most. Prolific growth. Tied with WINDSHADOWS for the C. G. White Award 1964.
