| From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: MELODY LANE. Seedling 46-02. From two flamingo pink seedlings. Here is a very attractive new color in Iris that I believe will be very popular. A Commercial artist described it as a bright glistening golden apricot. That seems to be as good a description of the color as I have heard. The flowers are very large, of good form with some ruffliing and with a large brilliant deep tangerine beard. Sturdy 36-inch stems. An Early bloomer. $20.00
