From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1958: BARIUM GOLD (Earl Roberts) 4" (Carpathia X ?) 31 chromosomes. NET 3.00. (Miniature Dwarf Bearded Iris). A bright barium gold, or orange yellow bitone with a feature that is almost unbelievable, considering that the chromosome count would indicate that it is a pumila, this little fellow has a bright orange beard! Very fine pumila type flower and foliage. Vigorous and floriferous.
