From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing FLAMINGO FLING (Hamblen) Deep pink with violet infusion. $25.00. Mission Bell.
FLAMINGO FLING is a deeper pink with less blue influence[than 'ELIZABETH STUART']. After viewing this one for two years in Wichita, I have decided that it is one I will be buying in '72. The color seems different from any other iris to me. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 13.]
