Full Description

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s Catalog for 1956: “This fresh, radiant, light hearted orchid-pink is the most feminine of Iris, reminding one of a winsome teenager flushed with pleasure as she pirouettes before an admiring family in her first formal – a diaphanous pink creation full of flounces and frills. This belle of the Iris garden will be the cynosure of all eyes. Her dawn-tinted taffeta gown is etherealized by pearly, opalescent tints infused with gold. Good in every way. May Magic adds new and lighter color note to our orchid-pink series, hitherto consisting of Lavanesque, Crispette, Orchid Ruffles and Pink Plume – all superb landscape Iris and all far more important in the garden picture that the paler flamingo pinks. Very free flowering.”
