See below:


From Longfield Iris Farm catalog, 1942: Pink Reflection (Cook No. 5737, 1942). A chamois skin pink blend of unique quality and individuality. A light to medium tint of pink with underlay of creamy buff. A beautiful soft blend that is liked by all who have seen it. Crisp, clean-cut flowers of good size and substance, attractive flaring form, and exquisite coloring. Late, coming into flower a week after other pink varieties. Pink Reflection, however, far from being dulled by the competition of earlier varieties in this color group, appears the finer and more distinct for it.Detail: S. arching, cupped Hydrangea Pink; F. flaring Hydrangea Pink to Vinaceous; Beard, Lemon Chrome. Flowers, 4 ins. high x 5 ins. wide; stem 36 ins. tall, branched from middle up, bearing 7 flowers. Plant of sturdy habit, stems freely produced. Late. $10.00.
