From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1927: Yellow Rail (Longfield No. 186). TB. Height 28 inches, stalk well branched, 6-8 flowers. Flower medium size, 3 inches high and 4-1/2 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; obovate; Lemon Yellow. Falls horizontal flaring; spatulate; white at base with maroon veins, shaded from the margin in and speckled with Lemon Chrome; beard yellow. Style branches yellow. Montezuma type, very vigorous and floriferous. The vegetation is very rank and lush, growing well up among the flowers. More than any other Pogoniris we know, it suggests swamp or marsh vegetation and this, combined with its color, has suggested its name — that of one of our marsh birds. It should prove attractive about the dry margins of cemented pools. $1.00.
