Full Description

TB 38″ M R7L

From the Stevens Bros. catalog for 1952-53: “Lovely rounded flowers of delicate pearly shell colour draws the attention and admiration of all. Huge flowers of gracefully flared and rounded form with an opalescent light over the heavy substanced petals. A decided margining of soft copper pink edges the falls which are so finely textured that the creamy pink colour seems to glow and flush in the sunlight. Lovely as a specimen plant it is even more exquisite when planted with light blues or deep violets. We think this iris will long be popular.”

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1952: “Serene, lovely, rounded flowers of a delicate pearly shell color or opalescent cool pink. So cool and morning fresh it is bound to capture your attention and admiration. A texture so fine the creamy pink coloring seems to shimmer in the sunlight. A hint of copper in the half inch margin around the edge of the petals and the rich mellow throat makes the whole flower glow. Exquisite planted with light blues or deep violets.”
