Full Description

TB 36″ M

From the Wanganui Gardens catalog for 1965-66: “Here is a sensational new colour combination that Mrs. Stevens has developed from her original pink Amoena strains. Beautifully held, waxen white standards contrast harmoniously with flared and ruffled falls of a warm cocoa toned pink enlivened by a red beard. This completely new colour combination is truly sensational, charming, novel – and crowd-stopping. An iris which makes one wonder if there will ever be any end to the extent and range of colours and colour combinations which may be bred into irises.”

(Youthful Charm X sdlg. from yellow amoena crossed pinks).
