From Iris Test Gardens 1954 “Deepest in color of the flamingo pinks. Thirty inches tall, with medium large flower. Fiery tangerine beard.Rhizomes grow small 1.20”.
From Eden Road Iris Garden 1957: “(Two Hall pink seedlings). One of the deepest of the clear pinks. Beard is vivid tangerine red. Well branched. Very popular.”
From Marble Iris Gardens Catalog c. 1960: “This is the deepest in color of all the flamingo pinks brought out to date. It is of outstanding color and while it is not as large as Cherie it does have sturdy stems and fine branching. The tangerine beard is prominent and the iris is hardy. Rhizomes from Courtier are small.”
