| BAROQUE PRELUDE (Zurbrigg, 1974), impressed me very much as being a milestone in the development of a true yellow amoena with pure white standards and clean yellow falls and beard. All the quality you expect in a modern iris was there too: Wide form; tall, strong stalks to carry the four branches; good plant habits.
