From the 1969 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Like the splendor of the rose tinted dawn is this ruffled blend of warm shades of salmony pink to rosy pink. Tints of soft salmon buff harmonize the color ensemble like early shafts of sunlight spilling from new splendored dawn. The flower is exceptional for a blend - full in bloom, ruffled, large, with rigidly straight stems and wonderful branching. It has been the stellar attraction of the later blooming iris varieties.
