. Marx 1956.
| From Marx Gardens catalog, 1958: PINK TRIUMPH (Marx 1956) Each $7.50. The high water mark thus far in our endeavor to produce a pinker Japanese iris. Measuring up to 8 inches across and fully double with almost no signals visible, this beauty is without question the very finest pink self we have, and has yet to meet a rival in any of our best unnamed pink seedlings. Extra wide robust foliage and stocky stems 2½ to 3 feet high. All our visitors are excited over it.
