| From AIS Bulletin #236 January 1980 Introducing GOLDEN GARNET ('80) M, 88 cm, #72-4G, Plicata $25.00. This is a very brilliant iris-brighter than Kilt Lilt, one of its parents. For this reason and for its other good growing and performance qualities, it is being offered for introduction. The standards are a rich yellow-orange, lightly veined red-purple (58A). The falls are plicata (almost a fancy), yellow ground and white signal. The semi-flaring falls are bordered on the outer edge by a 1/8" yellow-orange rim, then by 1/4" greyed purple (185A). Much of the rest of the fall is speckled the same color as the inner band. A show off!! Gibson Iris Garden.
