From AIS Bulletin #197 April 1970 Introducing KIMBERLINA (Sexton '70). Moon River X Glittering Amber X Chinese Coral. An imposing combination of salmon and pinkish orange self with self colored beard. Beautiful form with extra broad heavy substance petals, closed standards and flaring falls. Well-branched stalks with nine to twelve blooms per stalk. $25.00. Sexton's Iris Garden.
KIMBERLINA was also a pleasant surprise. The stalks were not as tall as they should have been this year, but perhaps this was due to the weather, since many others were also short. The lovely light salmon- pink flowers are a sight to behold. [Mullin, Ron (1971). Irises I Like, American Iris Society Bulletin 204(January 1972), 10.]
