| From Fairmount Gardens catalog, 1948: PAGAN PRINCESS (G. Douglas 1948) M. Something new! The first deep pink with a brilliant tangerine beard. The conic, closely held standards of Persian pink (nearest color in Maerz and Paul) with firm texture. The flaring falls are deeper in tone (Persian rose. R.H.S.) with a narrow edging of the same color as the standards. The color extends well into the center of the flower; no venations mar the haft. The bright tangerine beard is in striking, but pleasing contrast to the rosy pinkness of the flower. We offer this iris to those interested in breeding the new tangerine bearded pink buds, not as the ultimate in pink, but rather as a great advancement in deeper coloring and also as an iris of new color effect in the garden. The stock is limited! Only 12 rhizomes will be sold in 1948, one to a customer. 38 in. Net $15.00.
