Hybridizer's Comment: Just the most delightful pinkish magenta toned iris we have ever raised. Standards are opalescent creamy pink to opalescent lavender-pink at the midrib. Falls are light pinkish to rosy magenta with an 1/8th edge of pinkish lilac. Beards are tangerine in the throat and the outer 1/2" is soft blue lilac. The whole flower has a blue and rose pink effect. Very unusual and gorgeous. Super branching with loads of buds and lovely form. It also has a sweet perfume. Will set pods but is difficult. We think it could lead to lots of blue and pink combinations and we have marked a few selections from it already.
