From Longfield Iris Farm catalog, 1958: HEARTBEAT (Lapham No. 11-54) ((Bonny x Forerunner) x (Paradise Pink x Pink Formal)) This lovely Iris is closest to true pink — not a "flamingo" pink but a Flesh Pink very close to the color of the Floribunda rose "Rosenelfe." The beards are distinct not only in their fine color, deep lavender pink but in their neatness and extension down over the blade of the fall. The beautifully ruffled flowers are large 6x5 inches with the silky quality of Blue Sapphire. There is a definite crinkling on the falls below the haft. Midseason. 34 inches. See front cover. $20.00.
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: HEARTBEAT (Lapham '58) M-34". Almost a true powder pink, with a slightly deeper toned pink beard--quite different from any other. Large ruffled flowers with a silky quality. HM'58 (Bonny x Forerunner) X (Paradise Pink x Pink Formal). Regularly $10; on $15 order $5.95; on $25 order $4.95.
