INTERSTING INFO: From the 1957 Schreiner's Iris Lover's Catalog: Here is what may well be the most magnificent pink Iris ever produced. It is a refreshing orchid-pink derived from (Pink Plume x Pathfinder). Probably the largest pink Iris in existence, its form is perfection itself, its substance leathery to the extreme. A scintillating stardust sheen gives it an exquisite, ethereal quality beyond the engraver's reach. A touch of ruffling creates a certain effervescence of popularity, reminding one of a vivacious teenager. Top Favorite stands between May Magic and Lavanesque in depth of coloring. If you want a pink that will e the pride and joy of any Iris collection, this is it. Garden visitors will wear the grass thin in front of Top Favorite.
