|From Dorothy Guild we have had a series of bright variegatas and plicatas with variegata influence. My favorite is FLASHING BEACON ('69), which is every bit as brilliant as its name implies-yellow-orange standards, falls well covered with red-violet, form and stem excellent. [Jean Witt, “Miniature Tall Bearded Varietal Comment,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 55, No. 214 (July 1974): 60.]|
