| From Tell's Gardens catalog, 1964: WESTERN SUN (F. Harris '64) M-Vl 32 in. (Summer Sun X Glittering Gold) Although we seem to have many fine yellow irises, actually quality in this color class has lagged. Here is a real advance in yellows. A deep and rich mustard-yellow color that appears to have a metallic to almost velvety finish. Parts are very wide and the falls are perfectly round and flared horizontally-due to the heavy breeding (from each parent) from that wonderful iris Tobacco Road. Vigorous and hardy it will perform much better than either of its parents in almost any climate. A real masterpiece. H. C. Award 1963. $25.00
