From the 1967 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This is a larger, even more vivid Olympic Torch of which it is a seedling. The gracefully carried flowers are more roundly full than its illustrious parent, the glistening golden color even more rich and vibrant. The beard is of the same matching color as the petals. This is the most striking member of a limited color class and immensely valuable as a garden iris. The illustration is perfect. With its good branching and 8-9 buds it is by far the most outstanding late blooming iris and one that is literally an eye-popping variety.
