A most unusual combination of canary and white was named PLATINUM GOLD; name suggested by Bonnie Dunbar. The standards are canary yellow with a white reverse and mid-rib; the falls are white with a deep lemon half spot around the white beard, a narrow lemon edge, and yellow reverse. It is a beautiful pattern and something entirely new. It is not perfect since the falls tend to be strappy, but we expect to introduce it in 1967. [Earl R. Roberts, “A New Color Class in Medians,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 184 (January 1967): 48.]
