From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing SILVER CANYON. (Christensen '72) (Sdlg. 6DI-IO). TB. 38". M. Warm white with pink borders. Red-tangerine beard. This is a difficult iris to describe. The hybridizer says it is a pink with a white influence. The pink color deepens, forming a wide border on both standards and falls. Three branches and terminal. Domed standards and semiflaring falls. It is a good grower, fertile both ways and hard to fault. SILVER CANYON has received much favorable comment from garden visitors since it bloomed the first time. (Dancing Light X Blushing Beauty.) $25.00. Silver State Iris Gardens.
