Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1947: “One of the very finest orchid pink iris. The broad blooms, heavily textured, are ideally spaced on a well branched stalk. A near self with a shimmering mauve iridescence on the falls. The color is exquisite and it is an outstanding iris. An ideal iris for both the show table and the garden being particularly valuable because it is one of the latest iris to bloom prolonging the season in the garden.”

From Marble Iris Gardens 1952 “Late 36″ One of the finest of the orchid pinks. The flowers are broad, the texture heavy and the spacing and branching good. The color is very clear and it is a show iris in every respect. This late blooming iris won HM AIs in 1942.”

(Elizabeth Egelberg X Député Nomblot), HM 1938, AM 1939.
