From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: GOLDEN RUSSET. H. C. 1945. H. M. 1947. The unusual feature of this flower is its great size. On an established well grown plant it produces flowers seven inches high, the falls measure nine inches across when spread out on a ruler and the buds measure up to six inches. Golden Russet produces the largest Iris flowers I have seen. The 40-inch stems are stout and only on rare occasions do they require staking. It is a splendid grower and a free bloomer. The name is descriptive of its color. $7.50
Additional Catalog References: Longfield 1947; Tell 1947.
