Pale Primrose

AgnesWhiting 1946/1946

From Cooley’s Iris Catalog 1952 ” A late, cool primrose-yellow with a touch of wax-yellow at the haft. Of an attractive and useful color, the form of this iris is its real distinctive feature. It is oval, with standards closed and swirled at the top; the falls are long but so wide they nearly touch each other, the effect is of a huge yellow rosebud. Very late, high branched and tall—most effective in back of a planting. HM AIS, 1950.
