"Dolly Varden, seen only on one-year plants, was short and unbranched, but the flowers had more flare and substance than most of the Hall "pinks." It is not really a pink, but a blend, and may be rather neutral in mass effect, but it has a good deal of subtle richness on close examination." [John Dolman, Jr. (Pennsylvania), “From Aldan to Walden and Points North, Varieties Noted in 1951,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 15.]
DOLLY VARDEN (Hall, 1950) Each $15.00. A very large light pink with a slight overlay of salmon. The largest pink of the flamingo series yet named from the Hall collection. It is a self with no haft markings, good form and extra heavy substance and it takes the sun surprisingly well. Flowers are carried on sturdy well branched stems. 38 inches tall. Has proven a good parent for large pinks. Dolly Varden has probably attracted as much attention as any iris shown in the Hall garden. (Seedling No. 46-60.) HM AI.S, 1950. [Cooley's Iris catalog 1952, p. 13].
