From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1953: FLORETTA, Whiting 1953. No. 4717 (REMEMBRANCE X PINK REFLECTION). Midseason to late, 24 inches. A gay and captivating iris that has become a favorite with our garden visitors. It is a near self of orchid or mallow pink, fresh and spritely in color, form and carriage. The closed standards and crisply flaring falls are pleasingly waved but not ruffled. It is neither very large nor tall but it blooms so freely that it produces a cheerful splash of color over a long blooming season. The plants are hardy, vigorous in growth and very prolific. A most satisfactory border iris. $5.00.
