INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1951 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This lightly floriferous new flamingo pink is a real color gem. Not a large Iris, it is, however, about as pink as any variety I have seen, and, because of its clean-cut form and free-blooming qualities, is most effective as a landscape subject. A soft enameled sheen and fiery tangerine beard gives it a real distinction.
