| From Milliken Iris Gardens catalog, 1940: DOG ROSE (Insole) Without doubt this is one of the most desirable of the pink toned irises. The color is exceptionally clean and strong and the flower is glorified by a deep gold beard. Dog Rose has come to us from England, where it won a silver medal. We believe we are fortunate in having a fine stock of this variety but do not anticipate that it will last through the entire season. 3-1/2 feet. 3Sc; 3 for 7Sc.
| DOGROSE (Insole, 1930) Each 50c; 3 for $1.25. Deep rose-pink self, on very tall, wiry stems. We originally imported this iris from England several years ago and have constantly had difficulty in keeping enough stock to offer. A very free bloomer, it is of medium size but makes a most colorful and effective pink garden clump and is a beautiful cut flower in the house. [Cooley's Iris catalog 1952, p. 13].
| Dogrose is an old English iris still listed by some of our own best firms. It is distinctive in shape and color. Its smooth oval of lavender pink is lovely against Purissima's white ruffles. Lila McCombs, Calif., "A Critical Evaluation of Older Iris", A.I.S. Bulletin 110 (July 1948): 56.
