From AIS Bulletin #273 April 1989 Introducing CORAL SHELL-BB Sdlg. 84-6-3: ((Bright Life x pink sdlg.) x (Bright Life x Orange Chariot)) X ((Bright Life x Bright Butterfly) x (Bright Life x pink sdlg. )). Coral pink self, more red coral than we have seen in any iris to date. Showy flowers are nicely formed, standards are closed. Very early bloom, 6 buds, and a consistent 22" in height here.
