HONEY (K. Smith 1941) M. A lovely honey yellow border iris with large well formed flowers of heavy substance and most unusual color harmony. The standards are deep chamois yellow, highly arched and curved showing the inner surface with their very attractive Kaiser brown markings at the base. The ruffled falls are arched and half flaring of honev yellow with the same brownish flush and venations at the haft. These and the very deep orange beard add to the brilliancy of the flower. A trim and jaunty dwarf that is most effective in the garden. H. C., A. I. S. 1939. R. 86 1941. 12 in. $5.00. [Mrs. Thomas Nesmith, Fairmount Gardens Catalog, Lowell, Massachusetts, Introductions for 1941. Summer 1942-Spring 1943].
