From Quality Gardens catalog, 1938: MING YELLOW (Glutzbeck 1938) M. 42". The most sensational iris we have ever shown in our garden. A very large flower of pure deep yellow of very even tone, with smooth and lustrous finish. Substance very thick. The flower is softly ruffled and similar in form to its parent, Depute Nomblot, and it has the same superbly branched stalks. Declared by many judges to be the finest yellow in commerce and we agree with this verdict. $35.00.
