Awaiting original catalog description
From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: CANDY KID. (Frances Norton, 1954). Here is a "Gem of purest ray serene". The flower is medium in size, and the plant is 28 inches tall. The standards are rosy lavender with crimped edges, and the falls are darker rosy lavender with marbled color of rose and lavender in falls. A rather striped effect, hence "Candy Kid." This one looks like the forerunner of a new type of Iris coloring. Both standards and falls are heavily crimped, and flower is very late. $12.00
