From Longfield Farms catalog, 1927: Vesper Gold (Longfield No. 338). H. M. A. I. S., T. B. Pocahontas X mixed pollen. Height 40 inches, stalk high but well branched, 5-9 flowers. Flower medium size, 3-1/2 inches high and 5 inches wide. Standards arching cupped; obovate; Baryta Yellow, shading to pale Empire at the margins and deep Empire at the base, the whole suffused with violaceous reflections. Falls flaring; wedge shaped; same color as standards, darker at the haft with golden and maroon veining; beard bright orange. Style branches same as petals. This Iris flowered first in 1924 when it was immediately detected by Mr. Sturtevant. The name was kindly suggested by Mr. E. G. Lapham. We believe this Iris is the most rapid growing Pogon iris we have ever had in our gardens. Planted as a seed in the fail of 1922, the plant of 1924 was divided into thirteen parts, all of which grew. The flower is distinct and beautiful. $10.00.
From Iris Fields catalog, 1927: VESPER GOLD (Longfield, 1927). We are very glad to be able to offer this distinct new variety to our customers. It was awarded an Honorable Mention by the American Iris Society at Lafayette in 1926 and is well worth this distinction. “Height, 40 in., stalk high but well branched, 5-9 flowers. Flower medium size, 3-1/2 in. high and 5 in. wide. S. arching cupped, obovate, Baryta yellow, shading to pale empire at the margins and deep empire at the base, the whole suffused with violaceous reflections. F. flaring, wedge shaped, same color as standards, darker at the haft with golden and maroon veining, beard bright orange.” Introducer’s description. We consider this to be an Iris with a bright future 10.00
