NOB HILL (Gaulter) has never been introduced formally, but Hamblen will list it in her catalog next year. It is an outstanding medium yellow with mellow smooth blending of beige throughout and brown shoulders. This iris has won numerous awards, including an HC, an EC, the Region 14 Seedling Cup, and Best-in-Show in this year's Sacramento show. In our garden it grew to perfection; it should have been introduced years ago. [Joseph Ghio, “The 1965 Iris Season in Review,” Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 179 (October 1965): 81.]
