KatsI2 said:California gold or Spanish Gold. 1933. Mine has PBF. Blooming now this week tall and a vigorous grower. You cannot kill it. After looking at dozens of historic yellows lean towards California Gold as the name. But It is still a NOID because I cannot prove it without growing side by side. I have my yellow growing with a blue historic NOID. I think they look good together. The light in the second is an afternoon shot. It is not a pale primrose type of yellow. Everyone probably has this Iris if they are 60 or older. I am glad mine was passed along. Perhaps that is the name we should give our yellow NOID
