INTERSTING INFO: From the 1952 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: In the latest American Iris Society popularity vote, the four highest-ranking Iris in the yellow hues are two creams, Amandine and Desert Song, and deep gold Iris, Ola Kala and Berkeley Gold. There has been a singular lag in the production of outstanding clear, pure ture yellows. In Golden Sunshine we have an Iris of such lovely form, excellent habits, and generous size that it would be outstanding in any color. But it happens to be in just that intermediate tone of pure soft yellow heretofore so scarce. The ultimate in blandness, Golden Sunshine is free from both orange tones and lemon-lime tints. Soft as sunshine on a spring day, this lovely Iris will bring a pool of pure sunlight into your garden picture. Truly an Iris pre-eminent for landscaping, blending well with any color, tying all colors together, and giving light and life to the garden scene.
