| From AIS Bulletin #128, January 1953. Introducing ARMOUR BRIGHT-(Edmison)-Solid golden yellow, very broad of parts. The wide hafts are free of venation; the falls are horizontally flaring; standards cupped and firm but not touching. A bold masculine style, its huge size and heavy substance is relieved by minute crimping all round the petals. Growth is strong but not fast, and stalk and branching are adequate. The season is very late but only two weeks, and the spot-resistant foliage is a bit short for the 38" stems. A steady parent either way, it will give its style not unlike Tobacco Road, to pure whites or richest blends, many with very late bloom. (Snoqualmie x Prairie Sunset). $5.00. Avonbank.
| From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1955: ARMOUR BRIGHT (Rev. Edmison '53). M.-L. 38inches. (Snoqualmie x Prairie Sunset.) Wide, heavy-substanced golden yellow. Has inherited the smoothness of its two fine parents and is proving itself a most remarkable breeder for blends, yellows, rich tans and browns. $4.00
