A distinctive lemon yellow, not as deep as WEST COAST but shimmering in its loveliness and most elegant in form, fluting and bud placement. Tops in substance, as are all Knopf creations. $15.00
| Another iris with a low introductory price that has proven itself is ON TARGET. It has all the good qualities found in 'WEST COAST', which won a well-deserved AM this year. Two yellows, each different, each good, and near the top of a color class that is full of quality irises. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 10.]
