From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: CHANTILLY. H. M. 1945. A. M. 1947. A large ruffled orchid pink flower. The edges of both standards and falls are heavily frilled or fluted, more so than I have seen in any other flower. Chantilly is from the same line of breeding as our flamingo pinks. The 36-inch stems are stout and well branched. It has extra good substance, is winter hardy and a free bloomer. $5.00
From "Varietal Comments", AIS Bulletin No. 103, October 1956: CHANTILLY (Hall, D. 1945: A breeder's iris, interesting for its lace edges and pronged buds. The flowers open small, a clear orchid pink, but grow almost double in size after opening, and fade almost white, so that one sees two sizes and two colors on the same clump. The falls are too rectangular to be graceful. A break but not a finished iris. Dolman. Bloomed almost the last, its soft lilac pink flowers seemed to have a creamy lace edging crocheted on both standards and falls. Most outstanding. $5.00
Additional Catalog References: Hallcroft 1949; Longfield 1947; Tell 1947.
From Cooley's Gardens catalog, 1949: A ruffled orchid pink. The edges of both standards and falls are so heavily ruffled and frilled that they have the appearance of being edged with lace of a lighter shade than the rest of the flower. From the same line of breeding as the famous Flamingo Pinks. 36 inch stems strong and well branched. Shown on the cover of the Cooley 1949 catalog.
