From the Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog fo 1955r: “Like an orchid-pink Helen McGregor in its classic perfection is this copiously formed, lacily frilled successor to Pink Plume and which carries the beloved orchid pinks to new heights of size and pulchritude. LAVANESQUE is likely to prove an iris of meteoric, yet prolonged, popularity. Connoisseurs of both form and color are lavish in praise of this beauty. Winsomely ruffled, yet neat as a pin, its exquisitely orchid-pink tone is emphasized by a gold-illuminated beard and haft. Here, truly, is the pink of perfection.”
