GOLD TOP. Introduced by Carl Salbach last season. Rich old gold standards set off by falls that are red violet in the center and edged old gold. The style arms and beard afford a further touch of gold. Blooms very early and continues all through the season, the colors growing richer as the season advances: 42 inches tall and well branched. To me, this iris presented the novel appearance of being fashioned out of brass, because of the odd brass-yellow color effect. You surely will like it. Each $6.00; three for $15.00 [Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932].
