TB 38″ ML Y7D

From the Steven Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “Entirely distinct, this glorious new iris is a smooth, very light orange. Sensational as is the colour, the rich plush velvet of the falls and the rigidly held, taffeta-textured standards are equally so. A true self without a single vein or variation in colour, this iris is already receiving high acclaim overseas, and is considered amongst the top rank of the irises we have introduced. The flowers are large, and the plant is a vigorous grower and rapid increaser. Unlike most irises with orange toning, it will stand the hottest sun without either fading or bleaching.”

From the 1954 Schreiner’s Iris Catalog: “Royal Sovereign rivals Rocket in its intensity of coloring and reminds one of the lustrous light golden orange of the California Poppy. A glorious Iris of smooth, very light orange. Sensational as is the color, the rich, plush-velvet of the falls and the rigidly held, taffeta textured standards, are equally so. A true self without a single vein or variation in color. Large size flowers, full, opulent form.”
