Full Description

TB 38″ M

From Schreiner’s Iris Lover’s catalog for 1981: “It is a joy to offer here what is probably one of the best rose-pink plicatas. This incomparably colorful gem has standards marked lightly magenta over rose, while the falls are salmon rose on white and heavily stippled with maroon red. Throughout all shines a definite light pink. Beautifully ruffled and laced wide petals. Rancho Rose has ideally balanced form making it a truly a magnet in any garden.”
