From Maple Valley catalog 1939: PRINCESS MARYGOLD (H. P. Sass-Whiting 1939) V. E. 36 in. Because she was the daughter of King Midas, we named her MARYGOLD. An entirely new color among the early blooming irises, this lovely pink and gold blend is most welcome. The beautifully domed and ruffled standards are of clear apricot buff, and the wide, semivflaring falls are of the same shade, heavily overlaid with Corinthian pink. The form is most pleasing and the substance unusually fine. It blooms with the late intermediates and continues into the early tall bearded season. The stalks are well branched, carrying seven to nine flowers and buds without crowding. The plant is very sturdy and a very profuse bloomer. $5.00.
Princess Marygold, a child of King Midas, approaches being an apricot self, so smoothly is it blended. Like Mary Geddes, it has red brushed on the falls but as a smooth, soft-toned overlay, without veining. Substance very good, falls rounded and semi-flaring, size apparently medium, not ruffled. A newcomer well worth watching. [Lucy W. Tinley, "Midwest Iris Notes", A.I.S. Bulletin 75 (December 1939): 18.]
