| From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing GOLDFIELD-TB, 36", Mid-season. (Ad Astra X Kingdom). There are golden irises and golden irises, but this is a brilliant aurelian gold, which must stand in the lead of its color class. It is named appropriately for the famous mining town of Goldfield, Nev. The heavy beard is a matching gold, with a white flash just below it. Six-inch ruffled blossoms have arched, closed stands; flaring falls. Stems carry four branches, ten buds. It is prodigal of growth, and a clump flames in the garden. Net $25.00. Edgar Sellman.
