CHROMYLLA. (Loomis 1931) 40" M. This lovely new yellow was one of the delightful surprises of last year’s blooming season. The flowers are large and most beautifully shaped and of a uniform shade of lemon chrome. While it is not quite as deep in coloring as Pluie D’or, the flower has a smoothness of texture and finish that we have not seen equalled in a yellow Iris. The flowers are well distributed on a strong stem and hold their pure color to the end of the bloom. Stock limited and we can sell only one to each customer. $25.00. (Quality, 1931).

CHROMYLLA. (Loomis 1930) M. 40 in. A most beautiful and satisfactory tall, light yellow self. The flowers are large, well formed, exquisitely finished and well placed on tall stems. H.M. 1931, A.M.. 1932. 75c. (Maple Valley, 1937).

CHROMILLA [sic.]. (Loom. ’31) A uniform shade of lemon chrome, with marvelous smoothness of finish and texture. 40". A. M., A. I. S. 32. $12.50. (Over-the-Garden-Wall, 1933, p. 3).

CHROMYLLA. With its soft smooth finish, heavy substance, and uniform lemon chrome coloring, Chromylla has maintained a steady popularity as one of the leading new yellows. Each 50c. (Cooley’s, 1938).

CHROMYLLA. (Loomis). Tall, large flowered soft yellow always makes one think of a plain but beautiful person. Lacks "it" —heavy texture. (Belsley, 1939, p. 16).
