From the 1959 Mission Gardens Catalog: A large, clear medium yellow with a bright orange beard. Techny Chimes is from pink breeding which gives it a clearness of color not found in many yellow iris. The color is so clear the flowers have a luminous or crystal-like appearance. Substance and branching are good. Falls very broad and semi-flaring. Standards and falls are nicely ruffled.
