A flower of good substance; frail texture; smooth or slightly creped surface; fair fragrance; medium lasting quality. Useful in clump or mass in the early flower garden or border, and more robust than the average pumila. Standards pale chalcedony yellow or sea-foam yellow to lighter, reticulated with brownish on claw; carriage cupped, arching; blade obovate, notched, undulate, ruffled, revolute, smooth to crumpled; size 1 ½ in. wide, 2 ½ in. long. Falls chartreuse yellow on outer haft, the remainder same as standards; carriage drooping incurved; shape spatulate, convex, slightly pinched; smooth; size 1 ¼ in. wide, 2 ½ in. long. Minor parts: beard coarse, dense, projecting, white tipped with yellow; haft very broad, channelled; reticulations fine, widely spaced; style-branches broad, overarching slightly, keeled with blue; crest large, fringed; pollen plentiful; spathe-valves green, one-eighth scarious, inflated with keel. Growth moderate to vigorous; increase rapid; habit compact; foliage stiff, leaves broad, glaucous green; many 1-flowered stalks produced. A pumila hybrid, slightly taller than the average but a desirable plant. The color might be classed as that of a more creamy Florentina. Formosa makes a good color contrast when planted in front of this." [( Iris pumila L. and TB) X self?].
