INTERSTING INFO: From the 1949 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: A most unusual plicata. Confetti is the first tall, well-branched pink plicata with large flowers and very heavy substance. It is a striking flower delightfully flared, beautiful in form and fresh in appearance. The markings and striplings are pink on creamy white without the pearly sub-tint present in so many of this kind. The branching, placement on the stem and smart, trim carriage of the flowers are extra good. Confetti is pretty, bright, and snappy.
