From Fleur De Lis Gardens catalog 1956: GUIDING STAR (Tomp. 1951) M. 38 in. ((Damascus x Rocket) x (Acadia x Damascus)). A pure self of rich deep lemon gold. Flowers are large with broad petals and semi-flaring form. Beard is deep lemon. 2.00.
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: GUIDING STAR + ++ M-38" Report from Iowa: "Sensationally good early fall re-bloomer." Unbelievably brilliant glistening lemon-gold, non-fading. Heavy substance, broad round form. Fall stalks nearly horizontal, with 3 or 4 side branches arising vertically, each ending in a golden very spreading flower. So plant Guiding Star near front of bed; leave room for stalks to spread 2' in all directions. I have no other Iris for creating this stunning effect. Try it. Reg. $2.00; on $10 order $1 .70; on $25 order $1.50.
