The pinkest iris around is OVATION. An even deeper color in the veins gives it a very bright color that you'll like. I've seen it only twice, so let's reserve comment on its plant habits. Tompkins is using it widely in his hybridizing and has several seedlings which have already been named. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 13.]
