From Iris City Gardens catalog, 1940: MARVELOUS: This iris has been an outstanding feature of the garden for several years. Its name is the adjective most frequently used to describe it by admiring visitors. The general garden effcct of the flower is a deep yellow, but at the base the falls show several lines of deep red. It is in no sense a Variegata, but neither is it a pure yellow, though the garden effect discloses only the one color. The plant growth is vigorous, the flower is unusually large, stem is 40 in. tall. Few clumps of iris attract more attention than Marvelous. $4.00.
