From AIS Bulletin #297 April 1995 Introducing FLORENCE FISHER (L. Markham 1995) - TB - 30-32" M. Sdlg. #87-4C2. 7783-2A: Angel Feathers x ((Hall pink x Celestial Snow) x Arctic Flame) X Vanity. Crossing the Angel Feathers BB line with Vanity gave a gorgeous gang of smaller-scale tall beardeds, four of which still live here and are making pretty babies in both classes. "Florence" is a luscious cream self lit lemon in her heart, with light lemon beards blending to cream at the tips. The flowers are very wide and deeply ruffled with perfectly held standards, almost horizontally flaring falls, crisp substance and unusually smooth finish, and are presented on beautifully branched stems (3 + terminal). Named for Lynn's mother, who grew beautiful irises most of her adult life and would have loved the quiet elegance of this one. Fertile both ways and a promising parent. $35.00. Lynn & Peter Markham.
