IB 18″ ML Y9D

From The Wing Seed Co. catalog for 1920: “S. very clear pure yellow; F. brownish-red, very distinctly striped on white, narrow yellow border with wire edge of red. Eighteen inches.”

From Cornell Extension Bulletin 112, 1925: “Color effect a brilliant yellow. maroon veined bicolor. S. pinard yellow, brown dotted and reticulated on claw. F. velvety Hay’s maroon, veined the same on the lavender-white outer haft, which bronzes toward the center.

The edge of the narrow fall is brightly tinted and bronzed yellow. The plant is of moderate growth, and has stiff, slender, deep glaucous-green foliage. The flowers are rather flat in carriage, with spread segments. The unusual color contrasts are interesting in mass. Gold Bound is very close to this if not identical with it.”
