INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1979 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: You will stand breathless at the surprise that awaits you in this most unique color pattern. This unusual gem combines in a harmonizing dulcet light shrimp to salmon pink standards and falls amazingly of frosty uranium to light lime green. This latter cast radiates through the falls from an even deeper concentration of green on the reverse of the petals. Refreshing is the word for this wholesome and differently light colored Iris. Although not an extravagant complement of buds, the three branches do bear 5 to 6 buds each. This original pink and mint confection is must for those who delight in unusual and surprising new color combinations.
