From Carl Salbach catalog, 1933: PINK JEWEL (Salbach 1933 ). A most attractive and "different" pink with fine garden value. Color pinkish lilac with falls overlaid a glowing tourmaline pink. It is "warmer" than any of the other pinks in our garden and has been unusually popular. Increases rapidly, and splendid for mass planting. Remembering the saying "small iris, small price," we offer this fine variety for $2.50 each.
From Carl Salbach catalog 1938: PINK JEWEL (Salbach). One of the most popular smaller iris we know, most attractive under light, and nothing like it in the pink tones for mass bloom. The color picture, facing page 24, is an accurate representation. In mass, however, Pink Jewel seems pinker than do single blooms. Described as "the best pink" in her garden by a Mid-Western enthusiast who grew such new things as Dog Rose, Pink Satin, Imperial Blush, Pink Opal, Ethelwyn Dubuar, and others. Also praised from Italy, and Germany. Another enthusiastic iris fan says, "hesitate to call any iris 'pink' with no qualifying remarks, but this one comes mighty close, particularly under artificial light." Color pinkish lilac, with falls overlaid a glowing tourmaline pink. A sell-out last season, but thanks to the fact that the nubbins and too-small-to-sell rhizomes of last year have grown well, we can at least start the season with a good stock of splendid rhizomes. Mid-season. 30-inch. 35c; 3 for 75c.
