Acapulco Gold

Schreiner 1983

TB, 32″ (81 cm), Early midseason bloom.. Lightly ruffled pure butter yellow with a white flash below butter yellow beard. ‘Newly Rich’ X G 1320-A: (‘Golden Promenade’ x ‘Soft Moonbeam’).

From Schreiner’sIris Lovers Catalog 1988:”Although not as tall as some varieties, thismost brilliant golden yellow’s outstanding qualities more than compensate. Its abudant flowering ability(2 to 3 stemps per rhizomes) creates a carpet of color which gleams with unmistakable vibrance. Remarkable garden impact.
HM 1985.”
