From AIS Bulletin #145, April 1957. Introducing FIERY GLEAM (Glittering Gold) x (Melitza x Buffawn). This is a very large bi-tone red. Rosy-red closed standards. Smooth bright ruby-red broad falls, supporting a deep yellow caterpillar like beard-the largest I have ever seen. This bright heavy beard against the red background of falls makes this iris stand out like a beacon from any distance in the garden. Clean haft-no markings whatsoever. Height 40" with very good branching and many flowers. I have produced fine seedlings out of this iris crossed with reds and pinks. The pollen parent of Glittering Gold has red and pink in its ancestry. A fairly good stock permits the modest price. $18.00. George Murray.
