From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing CARVED ANGEL 1975. No. 72-15: Carved Cameo X Pink Angel. Midseason-TB-31". A delightful blue-pink and cream-pink bitone. Standards blue-pink, fully domed, well rounded and very ruffled. Wide, round, flaring falls are a delightful shade of cream pink with a light blaze at the center. Light tipped pink beard. Substance to spare. Three branches and terminal with six or more buds. This iris combines the goocharacteristics of both parents, and is a delight to behold. Plant habits are excellent and fertile both ways. Rudolph.
