From Walter Marx Gardens catalog 1955: PALOMINO (Hall 1952). Each 12.00. We first saw this marvelous creation in 1951 the year before introduction labeled Seedling No. 49-26. Its beauty and unique color simply enthralled us. Falls are ivory white with a buffy apricot border. Standards are pinkish buff. The large blooms are highlighted by a flaming orange beard. From the Flamingo Pink line of breeding this super iris will delight every iris lover. Simply breathtaking under artificial light. HM AIS 1952.
From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: PALOMINO. (Hall, 1952). Related to the pinks-it is a seedling of Hi-Time--the only suggestion of pink is in the standards.The falls are pale ivory with an amber copper shoulder and thin band all the way around.
