Full Description

TB 35″ M

From Eden Road Iris Garden catalog for 1957: “Grand new flesh pink or peach pink with tangerine beard. The well substanced flowers are large with wide clean hafts, semi-flaring falls, and closed standards. Vigorous and hardy. Will be used widely by hybridizers and should be a good parent.”

From Lloyd Austin’s catalog for 1958: “A frequent award-winning light peach pink of lovely form and a pink-tangerine beard, heavily substanced and broad petaled. Vigorous and fully winter hardy. Well branched with 12 flowers to the stalk.”
