■(TB) 'Deep Buttercup'
, R. 1947) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-Y4D. 'Brown Betty'
x 'Golden Eagle'
Note: Also listed in AB web: 'Deep Buttercup'
| From Tell’s Iris Garden catalog, 1948: DEEP BUTTERCUP (Muhlestein) (Brown Betty x Golden Eagle) This is the biggest yellow in the garden. A very dear, clean color without any orange cast. The huge buds look like "gobs" of yellow wax. The stems are tall and wiry. Because of the size of these huge blooms the weight of the top flower and buds very often bend tops of its stems, but in spite of this fault I think you will like this different yellow. Its 1/4th Oncocyclus blood makes it fascinating, too. It sets seed and the pollen is extremely fertile, especially on the "Mohr strain" and other hybrids. H. C. 1947. $15.00.
