From AIS Bulletin #233 Spring 1979 Introducing PACIFIC PEACH (Walt Luihn, 1979). #76-8. TB, 37", E-M. Proclamation X Solano. From two award-winning yellow irises, both having pink in their backgrounds, comes this wide and flaring iris of beautiful form and color. it is a ruffled self of a delectable shade of peach, barely touched with buff, and is accented by a brilliant persimmon beard. It has excellent bud count and has inherited several of Solano's outstanding characteristics, great height and branching as well as stiff ramrod stems. For us, it has been an exceptionally rampant grower. $25.00. Luihn's Iris Garden.
