ESTHER FAY (Fay '61). "Another standard with growth, stem, and all garden habits very complimentary. A pink that should be grown in all iris gardens. Color is lighter pink like most entries in this class, but devoid of excessive buff and apricot influences. A variety that continues to be impressive, year after year." [Roger R. Nelson (Wayne, Nebraska), “An Extra Dimension” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 196, (January 1970): 9.]

  • [Schreiner's Iris Lover's catalog 1967]: This beautiful pink self has that fascinating fresh pink color and ruffled, broad petaled flowers that one finds almost irresistible. A bright, red-pink beard further enhances the flower. An iris that is sure to thrill has height, form, branching and purity of color. HM '62. AM '64. $6.00 -- DavidPotembski - 30 Apr 2013
