| 'Mellow Moon' (Washington, 1934). A pale blend of good form and height. The falls faintly veined. It suggests 'Helios' or 'Marquita' but is a more compact and larger flower, the falls smoothly rounded, the standards domed. The stalk is widely branched. Height 45 inches. An easily remembered novelty and might be called a more brilliant and taller 'Doxa'. ----Mabel Carey Tobie p58 AIS Bulletin #59 October 1935 Iris notes on Mrs. Thomas Nesmith's collection.
