Fleur de Lis Gardens. (1954). Iris and hemerocallis catalog. American Iris Society Iris Encyclopedia. Retrieved from APRIGLO (Dailey 1954) M. L. 40 in. D8151. ((Dream Girl x F. Zenor) X (SQ72 X Golden Eagle)). A gigantic, broad petaled flower of excellent form, this is a self of very rich apricot pink with a deep rose pink beard. A fine show flower and a beautiful garden subject, this is a strong, fast grower with tall, excellently branched stalks.This and Orchid Dawn are both originations from my cousin, Leota Dailey who has been helping me for several years. Her favorites have been the pinks and she has worked steadily with these. Since she lives less than two blocks from me, I have had the opportunity to observe the day by day performance of her seedlings. Her concentration on the one color has had remarkable results and she has some amazingly fine pinks coming along. Apriglo and Orchid Dawn have stood out from all her earlier results, not only because of their beauty but because of their fast growth. Each lined out rhizome seems to produce two or three stalks and make a small clump by the following blooming season. As a result of this extra fast increase we are placing them on the Parade and hope you will like them as much as we do. (Fleur De Lis, 1954).
