INTERESTING INFO:
From the 1972 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: This dainty refined shimmering pearl-pink with its precise sculptured ruffled form is a classic. A happy combination of dulcet coloring, a robust grower as well with a pleasing branched stem. The reproduction is as faithful as one can achieve on paper; nor can words adequately portray the exquisite grace of this memorable iris. Immaculate blooms, substance like leather, a complete self, even to the colored beard. An iris of elegant air that exudes a quintessence of beauty. To have it bloom in your garden will be a continuing delight and unforgettable pleasure.
