| FLOWER POWER (Plough '68). Power in its unusualness. Perhaps the flower is a bit small for its height, and there are a few reticulations at the haft, but it has to be accepted as a break and quite an accomplishment in hybridizing. Peachpink standards; purple falls. [Tell Muhlestein, “Twenty-five Irises That Have Performed Well for Me,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 199 (October 1970): 49.]
