From Fleur De Lis Gardens 1956: CLARE DE LUNE (Whiting 1955) M. L. 36 in. ( (Purissima x Matula) x Gilt Edge) x Glad Tidings. A very large iris of excellent form with broad, rounded and cleanly tailored petals. A lovely shade of cool lemon to Calcedony yellow with the wide, closely domed stands being just a shade deeper, toward Cadmium lemon, this gives the appearance of a reverse bitone in the garden. The immense, flaring flowers are in keeping with the strong, well branched stalks. 15.00.
There is an iris registered by John Wareham in 1925 as Clair de Lune; designated Obsolete in 1959 checklist, p. 39; name released in 1954 to Mrs. C. Whiting. However, the original Clair de Lune by Wareham has been found still growing and is listed as ' Clair De Lune by Wareham'
