See below:


From AIS Bulletin #169, April 1963. Introducing ANGEL LYRIC-Luminous, pure, clean pink. Very large, ruffled blooms are set off by a bright pink beard. From Michigan came this report of a one-year-set plant: "Angel Lyric is a sweetheart! It is truly a clean, true pink. The best real pink that I have seen. Introduce it by all means; everyone raved about it." Also, another authority on irises wrote me: "Hazel, your Angel Lyric pleased me because it was good to see something in pink that was good color and form." I feel that explains this lovely iris better than anything I can say. Medium height, heavy substance, and good branching. $30.00. Schmelzer's Garden.
