INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1939 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: From the magic hand of Cayeux comes this superlatively beautiful new yellow. Unrivaled in grace and symmetry, this delightful iris possesses a uniformcclear tone of crystalline canary yellow, with just a touch of grolden-brown venation at the haft, reminding one of the soft brown lines in the throats of waxy yellow "lady slippers." No yellow iris surpasses Eclador in exquisiteness of sheen, its texture being of the fine type known as "enameled." Like several of the yellows its standards display charming touch of fluting. No up-to-date collection is complete without this captivating iris.
