From AIS Bulletin #193 April 1969 Introducing CHERRY JUBILEE Net $25.00. (Vernon Wood 1969). Imagine a fluffy, glistening white dessert topped with a glowing red cherry and you will have a good color picture of Cherry Jubilee. Form and substance are at their best on this well-branched beauty. Much admired at the Golden Gate Convention and tops in the 1968 HC voting. Willing parent either way. Limited stock. 36". Midseason. Seedling #66-40: ((Mary Randall x May Hall) x Frilly Fringes) X Rippling Waters. HC 1968. Cherry Lane.
CHERRY JUBILEE is a larger flower than 'CHRISTMAS TIME' and is more tailored. In local gardens the beard is more red-orange than red. Both irises increase rapidly, but CHERRY JUBILEE has a tendency to bloom on much of its increase. The first year I grew it, there were four bloomstalks on seven increases—five bloomstalks on a one year plant. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 9.
