From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1964: HOSANNA (Terrell '64) 36" Midseason bloom. (Cream Crest X Lynn Hall) A joyous beauty that sings praises of Spring with every glittering petal. The full domed standards are a clear light lemon yellow and the extremely wide flaring falls are cleanest crystalline white with just a wire edge of sparkling yellow. The color deepens to a smooth lemon butter yellow on the hafts. You will notice that the words "clear" and "clean" are the keys to the description of this iris, and most appealingly so. Well branched stems and clean healthy foliage . HC 1962. $25.00.
