From Melrose Gardens catalog, 1965: LEAVE ME SIGHING (Fred Maddocks ). HC '63. This is one of the largest Japanese Iris we have seen. That wouldn't be such an impressive statement except that it is a PINK; very nearly a complete self of pink! Actually, a medium lilac pink even to the style arms. Small yellow signals rest on a small slightly deeper lilac feather. All 6 petals are broad and overlapping and are held horizontally. It branches, too. What more could you want of a Japanese Iris-a pink at that? NET 15.00.
