'Moonlight' (William Rikatson Dykes), 1923). TB, Midseason bloom. Color Class-W4.
|MOONLIGHT (1923) - I can throughly recommend this mid-season variety. The very large, finely-formed blooms are carried on stout well branched stems, 3 feet high. The pale amber broad standards are finely arched, the falls are straight hanging, smoky sulphury yellow, with heavy greenish gold reticulations at the haft, with a striking broad yellow lemon beard. Very strong scented. quite distinct in colour and a real acquisition. [The Dykes Irises catalog, 1929]|
