CLASS: Tall Bearded
BLOOM SEASON: Late
DESCRIPTION: Cool lilac and opalescent warm pink; suggestion of fringes at edges of F.
PARENTAGE: Amethyst Flame X Pretty Carol
From the 1966 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Amethyst Flame has proven a remarkable parent and here we have infused into its cool lilac an opalescence of warm pink derived from Pretty Carol. May Delight has superb rounded form with generous ruffling intensifying toward just a suggestion of a lacy edge. A truly fascinating iris, its sturdy, tall stems and suede-like texture and late season bloom, which prolongs the iris season are all desirable features.
