GOLDEN EPAULETS (Grant 1946) M. L. A new white and gold iris of extremely heavy substance, full rounded form and as smoothly finished as a piece of polished ivory. The standards are broad and very firmly held; the falls are full and flaring and the neat heavy flush of gold on the haft is as trim and precise as the epaulets on a uniform. The loveliness of this warm white is enhanced by the smooth firm finish, heavy substance and the infusion of gold in the throat and beard. Last year this iris attracted a great deal of attention in the garden. Good branching and increases rapidly. 38 in. $15.00 Fairmount Gardens Catalog, 1946.
From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: GOLDEN EPAULETS (Grant 1946) M. 36 in. (Sunday Best x Chosen). Another yellow bicolor similar to Mystic Melody, the color of this is deeper in the throat and on the hafts. Bright. 1.00.
