(TB) 'Glad Tidings'

, R. 1946). Seedling# 4246. TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class Y4M. ('Amitola'
x 'Copper Piece'
) x 'Amaranth'
. Locust fragrance.
| From Maple Valley Iris Garden catalog, 1947: GLAD TIDINGS (Whiting 1947) No. 4246 ((AMITOLA X COPPER PIECE) X AMARANTH) M.L., 34 inches. A happy novelty among the light chrome yellows. The flowers are very large, widely flared, beautifully ruffled and of heavy, waxy substance. A single bloom makes a stunning corsage. The arrangement of the flowers is quite unusual. The branching is low, and wide enough to prevent crowding. The lower blooms open first and when a few are out it looks like a huge spike of gladiolus. It is very effective in flower arrangements indoors. We think this is an innovation, perhaps a forerunner of a race of iris really practical for cut flowers. $10.00.
