GOOD CHEER (Sturtevant) In the spring of 1934 we were in Miss Sturtevant's garden and saw Good Cheer in bloom as a seedling. It was the center of attraction, and stood out prominently among hundreds of other irises because of the clean brilliance of its color. The standards are a clear yellow, made all the more brilliant in contrast to the falls which have a bright yellow ground color thickly veined with red. The flowers are of good size and excellent form, and are carried on graceful 38-inch stems. One of the leading iris breeders of the country asserts "Good Cheer is the finest true variegate I have ever seen ." $1.50. [Milliken Iris Gardens Catalog, Pasadena, California, 1940].
