D. M. Y., Parentage unknown. Probably a herbaceous hybrid. Roots yellow. Stems upright, strong, bright green, medium tall.. Foliage slightly darker, small. Flowers medium in size, double with some hidden stamens, lemon yellow, fading lighter with age. It blooms with the late Japs. It should prove good for landscape work., arrangements and hybridizing. Due to the fact that the origin of this variety is unknown and also its true name is uncertain, it is being registered by Mr. Smirnow under the above name. It is hoped that its history may became known at some future time and that the species from which it has been derived will be discovered.
