Hybridizer's Comment : Quite the most delightful iris. We have had some good seedlings from 'Treasured' and this one is by far the best. It is the softest pastel pink, slightly deeper at the base of the standards and has a faint creamy area around the beards, but for all intents and purposes, it is a self. It is extremely ruffled and fluted with virtually all stems Show stems. Being early, it will be great for those early shows and as well it is proving to be a super parent.
