| From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing CARVED CAMEO (Rudolph '72). $30.00. No. 68-70. (Cream Taffeta X 66-60 ((64-61 x Yellow Chiffon) x (Moon Crest x Yellow Chiffon)). Midseason. 31". A delicate tint of ivory or cameo pink (RHS 27C). Standards cameo pink, very ruffled, domed and framing the wide deeper cameo pink styles. Beautifully ruffled, wide rounded falls, complemented by a light tipped deep pink beard. This iris is another beautiful departure in pink color and form. Three branches with eight or more buds. Heavy substance. Plant habits are excellent. Fertile both ways. HC '71. Lakelawn Gardens.
| If the white color class is crowded with quality introductions, coming close behind are the pinks. And if I were to select just one iris to be considered a standout during the last bloom season, the title "Most Outstanding, 1975" would go to CARVED CAMEO (Rudolph '72). On every plant I had came perfectly formed blossoms of pale cameo pink on healthy stalks, each with three flowers open at a time. Even though it had a name tag in the garden, many visitors asked its name: people had to talk about it. For me it is a good grower, too. The only "fault"--if it be one--is that it never quite hit a show date! James McWhirter, “Reflections and Anticipations,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, Vol. 57, No. 221 (April 1976): 8.]
