From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing CHERRY ACCENT (Hamblen) Satin pink, tinged blue; cherry beard. $25.00. Mission Bell.
CHERRY ACCENT (Hamblen '70), one of those luscious crowd-stopper pink things. Not a 'must-have' but more a 'can't-live-without' one. Closed standards, almost horizontal falls; no lace but waving in a most appealing manner. Personally, I preferred Mrs. Hamblen's H64-25A, an orchid pink of generous size, but compact form and excellent carrying power. Charmingly laced, plus ruffles, coral beard and flowers lasting four days without disaster from heat. (Jendel, 1970). A Real Challenge. Bulletin of the American Iris Society, 199(October 1970), 13.
