From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1963: “Color experts consider lemon yellow the criterion of what constitutes true yellow. Lemon Mint is just such a cool primrose or lemon yellow with no inclination toward either green or gold. Look at your iris planting: Wouldn’t more yellow add vibrancy to the general effect? At least one-fourth of an iris planting should be yellow, landscape artists maintain. In Lemon Mint, we have a crisply flaring, lightly ruffled soft true yellow that will light up an iris garden and glamorize all the other colors.”
