From Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “An attractively groomed flower which owes its polished beauty not only to its smooth unveined falls but also to its clean even color toning. Quite unlike any other iris we list, Gay Spirit has the lovely light which the setting sun sometimes gives when it turns the grass a vivid green and warms the golden flowers of the garden to tan gold. Neither very large nor very tall, but a flower which will be a ‘must have’ for hundreds of iris lovers. A real self and stands hot sunshine.”
