From Elizabeth Hardee Iris Garden catalog 1032: PLUIE IVOR (Pleu-ee Daur') (Cayeux 1928) M. 41" (Translated Golden Rain)—This is a self color, pure golden yellow; stems widely branched, bearing many flowers of good size and substance. Certificate of Merit S.N.H.F. Dykes’ Memorial Medal, 1928. 6.00.
From Cooley's Wholesale pricelist, 1932: PLUIE D'OR. A beautiful iris, on slender, perfectly branched stalks well over three feet tall. Fine rounded flowers of solid golden yellow, with deep yellow beard. Winner of the Dykes medal in France, it has proven an outstanding variety of this color both in Europe and America. Wherever I went last spring I found hybridizers at work with crosses from this variety, an indication of the regard in which it is held by our foremost introducers. Each $5.00; three for $13.50; ten for $40.00. Large stock permits this very low price.
PLUIE D 'OR would be a desirable yellow if the standards did not fade so. [Dornblut, J., Bellingham, Wash. Varietal Notes, <American Iris Society Bulletin 55 (February 1935), 100.]
