From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1957: GIBSON GIRL (Gibson 1948) Each 1.00. Here is one that has proven itself twice, and does so every year. With ETHEL PECKMAN, it forms the pair that can really be relied upon for spring as well as fall blooming, and the heavily marked plicata blooms in light pink to deep rose mulberry on cream ground delight their owners withtheir color, size and form. 36 inches.
"His first official introduction, put out by National Iris Gardens in 1948, was GIBSON GIRL, a direct cross of TIFFANY and MADAME LOUIS AUREAU. GIBSON GIRL is still widely grown by historic iris lovers and those specializing in remontants. It carries a strong tendency to rebloom, a trait passed on to many of its descendants." “In Memoriam, James M. Gibson, 1902-1993,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 293 (October 1993): 70.
Reported Rebloom in: CA, CO, DE, IN, MI, MO, NE, NY, OH, PA, SC, TX, VA, WI, Ontario USDA Zone 4,5,6,7,8,9. The 2012 Cumulative Checklist of Reblooming Iris, p. 83.
