INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1962 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Yellow is such an important color to give brilliance to an iris planting that we can't seem to get enough of it. Here is our finest yellow seedling. Out of Gold Piece, it is even richer and purer with a velvety nap, a leathery opaqueness that gives it scintillating color saturation. A striking, rich, gleaming gold, Granada Gold is intense to the point of phosphorescence in the clump. Here is a yellow that will add life to any Iris planting. A fine addition to this vibrant color class. It draws the eye irresistibly.
