Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1929:  “C.E. Stringer and Kalos are a new type – white overlaid by a pink cloudiness. Trostringer is an improved C.E. Stringer.”

From Quality Gardens catalog for 1931:  “The flower is a lovely tone of soft delicate pink; a self of fine texture. The haft has a soft golden sheen and the beard is bright yellow. The flowers are of good size and beautifully frilled.”

From Indian Spring Farms catalog for 1931:  “Large, of delicate light pink effect. Ground, white suffused rose.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1932:  “A few years ago the Sass’s gave us this lovely apple blossom pink – a pink so pale and delicate that it is almost a tinted white. It still stands as one of the really excellent things in fine iris.”

From Robert Wayman’s Iris Catalog 1932:  “The lightest pink toned Iris; might be termed a white delicately flushed pale pink. Very popular pink.”

From The Pfeiffer Nursery catalog for 1933:  “Large, delicately rose flushed flower of exceptional substance.”
