| From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1929: Tuscany Gold (Williamson No. 243, 1929). (Empire X ?, probably Lent A. Williamson) Tall bearded, height, 7 flowers, well spaced. Flowers medium to large, 4 inches high and 4-1/2 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; obovate; Sulphine Yellow, clearer and deeper yellow at the claw, shading throughout the blade to deeply tinged purplish at the margin; claw with restricted Maroon reticulations. Falls drooping; broadly wedge shaped; colored like the standards but with more purple especially in the median area and near the apex; haft Light Cadmium, Maroon veined; beard Cadmium Yellow. Style branches Sulphine Yellow, crests purple tinged. The name for this variety was suggested by Mr. G. A. Stevens. It was selected from a lot of seedlings flowering for the first time in 1923 by Mr. Sam Burchfield. It has been admired for several years, and in 1928 received the unanimous approval of all the many qualified judges who saw it in our garden, where the general effect was a distinct reddish gold color. $15.00.
