INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1982 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This happy flamingo pink has been tested in our gardens for the past several years. We have become more and more enthralled with her singular beauty. She is a smooth pink self, with a flawless branched stem that sports 3 florets open at a time. Both her growability and those candelabrum show bench stems rank her as splendid. A garden Iris with more than just a plus for performance...rare in a pink Iris. 3 branches plus spur with 7 buds. If you want an easy growing pink Iris, try Cherub's Smile.
