"Aspenglow, another from Dr. Loomis at long last. A combination of DeForest and Loomis lines. Very deep yellow, very late, an excellent grower and for the above reasons a most desirable iris". Lys Housley (Mrs. Howard), "Regional Reports, Hybridizing in Region 20", Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 143 (October 1956): 134.
Aspenglow (Loomis), the deepest gold I have seen. Did not fade in the sun. Large blooms on well branched stalks. [John E. Pierce, "After the Ball Is Over", Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 146 (July 1957): 40].
