| From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: GOLDEN SCEPTRE (Mrs. T. A. Washington 1948) L. An iris of distinction and the most beautiful yellow spuria that I have seen. Perfectly formed flowers with under color of cream, heavily flushed with glowing yellow. The blooms are open in form, and charmingly fluted on both standards and falls. The many blooms are perfect in form and borne on tall well branched stalks. Ideal as a cut flower, and most decorative in the garden. 42 in. $12.00
