From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1953: GOOD MEASURE, Whiting 1953. No. 4638 (OLA KALA X ROCKET). Midseason to late. 36 inches. A very deep yellow self that is considered by many visitors to be one of the best irises in our garden. The color is pure cadmium yellow, by Ridgway, or saffron by Wilson. We think it may be the deepest yellow possible without an orange infusion. Its name indicates its generosity in all the qualities expected of a good iris. It is so prolific that we have a large stock. In line with our policy of “Extra for Good Measure,” we expect to send one as a special gift with as many orders as possible this season. $10.00
