| From Keith Keppel Iris catalog, 2009: FASHIONISTA ML 35" (Candy Clouds X Poem of Ecstasy) Such lovely color! Uniform clear powder pink standards are held over clean falls of lavender to wistaria violet. Muted orange tangerine beards; lovely ruffled form. We've had a slight amount of rebloom on it. #M59-2. $50.00; 3 for $135.00.
| Hybridizer's comment: Gorgeous coral pink standards, full and ruffled. Falls are soft pastel blended lavender with apricot hafts. Beards are muted orange. Pronounced sweet fragrance. Wide and ruffled with good branching. It's an improvement on its parent 'Poem Of Ecstasy' that proved very difficult to grow in Australia and we are delighted to have this to offer in its stead. It reblooms sporadically in autumn. lntroduced in conjunction with Keith Keppel in USA 2009.
