From AIS Bulletin #309 April 1998 Introducing GLADYS MY LOVE. It seemed tbat a pink amoena would be the appropriate Iris to name for GLadys with her white hair and pink complexion and red lips. My first cross towards that end was: Extravaganza x Pink Formal in 1957. Thousands ofseedlings later, I have a pink amoena that has been named GLADYS MY LOVE. This Iris is not perfect, but then neither is Gladys, but for 64 years she has been perfect enough for me. Varigay Gardens.
