From AIS Bulletin #185 April 1967 Introducing PINK FRINGE (Nate Rudolph) ML. 34 in. Sdlg. 63-60 (Inv. PINK ICE, FLEETA, MAY HALL, PINK CAMEO, NEW HORIZON, etc.) Show-type stems bear heavily laced blossoms featuring a new shade of blue-pink with a deeper beard. H.C. '66. $25.00. Moldovan's Gardens.
PINK FRINGE (Rudolph '67). "This seems to be the really monumental addition to this group. A new tint of pink, being a blue-pink with a deeper blue-pink beard. The blue influence causes the coloration to look very deep pink in the garden, with absolutely no buff or apricot present. Producing fine show type stems on very healthy plants. The petal edges are very laced and the form is good, although the falls could flare more. Unquestionably the outstanding new pink gracing Midwest gardens." [Roger R. Nelson, “An Extra Dimension” __The Bulletin of the American Iris Society__, No. 196, (January 1970): 9.]
