INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1931 Schreinerís Iris Lovers Catalog: This lovely tall pink Iris has more than realized the good impression it created at the Iris show last year. It was flowering magnificently at the Iris Trials at Wisley this June, some spikes standing 4 feet, 2 inches high. The flowers are very large oval-shaped and of fine texture, and are a delicate shade of pink with a golden beard. The falls perhaps a shade deeper than the standards, but this is hardly discernable. A very beautiful superb pink Iris. Height over four feet. Mid-season. Silver Medal, Iris Society London, 1929

From the 1939 Schreinerís Iris Lovers Catalog: A lovely pink iris with oval shaped blooms of a cool, clear tone. A tall, free-blooming sort that is fine for landscape work. Delicate and refined.
