■(TB) 'Opera Pink'
(Mrs. C. Whiting
, R. 1949). Seedling# 4635. TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-R7L. 'Shannopin'
| From Maple Valley Gardens catalog, 1951: OPERA PINK. Whiting 1951. No. 4635 (SHANNOPIN X PATHFINDER). Midseasan to late, 40 inches. A light creamy pink self that has attracted considerable attention. We have been trying for some years to get a clear pink iris without a tangerine beard. Although too light for some tastes, OPERA PINK is a step toward this goal. There is no hint of orchid and the beard is cream colored. The flowers are large, broad and full, of classical form and heavy substance. The tall strong stalks are well branched, the plants hardy and prolific. $10.00.
