Need help with id for yellow and white iris

I am trying to put some names on my collection. Most were given to me by an elderly iris collector. Any ideas on these? Also I have a bunch of heirloom historic Indian chiefs to trade. I like bold colors. What do you have??? Thanks

Looks too modern for Pinnacle, the first yellow amoena by Jean Stevens in the late forties. There aren't many yellow amoenas, so somebody should come up with a name.

Glacier Gold by Jessie Wills, Nashville, TN, might be it or Winter Light, whose hybridizer I have forgotten. These were standard yellow amoenas for years afte Pinnacle hit the market.

Might be Echo De France

I believe it is Schreiners 'Wedding Candles'.

For some reason, it just doesn't look modern enough to be Echo de France or Wedding Candles. I may be wrong. The description of EDF was that it had gold falls with green highlights. I didn't see that. WC says flushed yellow at midribs and full yellow beards.

Here's a link to the pics at Dave's Garden.

Walter, I'm trying to remember one by Ben Hager about the same time as Wedding Candles. I agree it's not Echo de France. I'll go search out Winter Light.

Moon Journey by Ben Hager. That might be a possibility.

Your yellow and white iris looks a lot like one that I have called "Sing A Long". I received mine in 1976 with my first iris. It came from the Walla Walla Washington area. Mine does not grow very tall more a border than a TB. Enjoy your iris.

Moon Journey -- of course. Couldn't remember that to save my soul.

No luck finding a photo of Winter Light. Now to look for Sing A Long. I like this color combo and used to have Tulip Festival - very unique standards (almost aril look). Phooey, died out.

RE:could it really be Tulip Festival ?

Moon Journey has a bit of white around the falls.

Maybe it is Tulip Festival !? What do you think Bigtoad? As I recall TF held the standards very erect with the neat tailored form as shown.
