From AIS Bulletin #297 April 1995 Introducing SUNKIST DELIGHT (Niswonger '95) Sdlg. 92-91: Sunkist Frills X 38-88: (Halo In Yellow x Peach Band). TB, 36" (91 cm), M-L. The pollen parent of this one was my very favorite in 1988 with the deepest gold halo and the most ruffles I have ever seen but it bloomed out and was lost but it's genes remain with this introduction. The standards are light yellow with some deeper flecks of gold and the falls are white with a wide deep yellow, near gold, halo. The beard is deep yellow and the stalk is strong. It has been a favorite of visitors since it arrived. $35.00. Cape Iris.
