From AIS Bulletin #150, July 1958. Introducing GRADUATION GIFT (Snow Flurry x Pink Formal) X Marsala. Luscious orchid-pink self with a bright coral-pink beard to match. The very large flowers are beautifully ruffled and laced. Standards, well-domed and falls flare nicely. Each bud socket carries 3-4 buds, giving a wealth of bloom on excellently branched stalks. Fertile both ways and already proving to be a remarkable parent. H.C. '55. $25.00. Awalt Iris Gardens.
