Full Description

EM 38″
From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1974 (the intro year): “A two toned pink and rose variety…suggesting the colors of grandmother’s beloved  “Bleeding Heart” plant. Pink white standards, with a richer, deeper concentration of rose pink fall. The warm bright suffusion of the falls is enhanced by a contrasting deeper tangerine rose colored beard. The petals are modestly waved and fluted, giving the flower an air of winsome circumspection, a curtsying grace. Carnaby has an unusual texture, crystalline and waxy, due to the remarkable thickness and heavy substance of the petals. “
