| From Schreiner’s catalog, 1953: LAVANESQUE (Schreiner 1953) E. 40". Like an orchid-pink Helen McGregor in its classic perfection is this copiously formed, lacily frilled successor to Pink Plume and which carries the beloved orchid pinks to new heights of size and pulchritude. Shown most realistically on our front cover in a stunning Starke arrangement. Lavanesque is likely to prove an iris of meteoric, yet prolonged, popularity. Connoisseurs of both form and color are lavish in praise of its beauty. Winsomely ruffled, yet neat as a pin, its exquisite orchid-pink tone is emphasized by a gold-illumined beard and haft. Here, truly, is the pink of perfection. No. G317-2. $20.00.
