|I commented at the beginning of this article that this was the iris season when the named and introduced borders grew up, up, and beyond the height limitation for this class. The fact that some did, irked me; for among them was one of the most unique of irises, the beautifully formed and different yellow bitone, MISS GOLDILOCKS (Hamner '73). Do seek it out next season.
