'Galoubet' is an Ancient French bearded yellow germanica iris. It is registered as a Tall Bearded iris but i personally would probably call it a Miniature Tall Bearded [MTB] as it has the same smaller flowers size as Sherwin Wright, which is an MTB.. It has a beautiful golden yellow color with dark burgundy red purple veining on the falls, yellow horns and mandarin beards. It gets about 24 inches tall. I do not own this iris or yet have any experience growing it, as I dont think anyone even grows it yet in the States; but I am giving it a positive for its shear beauty, rarity, and ancient historic iris status alone.
