From AIS Bulletin #213 April 1974 Introducing JOYCE TERRY (Muhlestein '74). Midseason-Late, 38". Charmaine X Launching Pad. Named for my talented sister-in-law. This is not a new color combination, having yellow-domed standards, flaring white falls with exact yellow border. The cleanest and best contrast I have seen in this color class. Lots of charm and personality. Vigorous rhizomes and foliage. #493 A. $35.00. Tell's Iris Gardens.
JOYCE TERRY is supposed to be an improved LAUNCHING PAD and in some respects is. JOYCE TERRY has a richer color and somewhat better form, but LAUNCHING PAD can outgrow and outbloom it. And, there is nothing wrong with the glowing yellow and white of LAUNCHING PAD. [Margaret Dean, (NM), “How They Grow, New Mexico Style”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 246 (July 1982): 13.]
