From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1954: CARABELLA (DeForest) We love her- here is a perfectly sumptuous large salmon-pink with matching beard. She is a darling, grows like a weed, needs no coddling, and blooms and blooms. 3 ft. $2.00.
"Carabella, a soft peach pink, smoother and heavier in substance than most pinks, refined on close scrutiny, but not very exciting in garden effect." [John Dolman, Jr. (Pa.), “Forty-Nine East,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 115 (October 1949): 44.]
