From Longfield Iris Farms catalog, 1955: SEVENTH HEAVEN (Sdlg. No. 7-52) ((Loomis Seashell Seedling x Forerunner) x Paradise Pink). A luscious shade — Pure Shell Pink (Wilson 516/3) with beards of a lovely pink color instead of the apricoty color seen in so many. The flowers are of medium size on well branched, 30 inch stalks. We feel Iris growing would be most monotonous if all Iris were giants. We do feel we need more Iris of medium size to enhance the front of borders in our garden. Strong growing and free flowering, makes this Iris ideal for landscaping. An addition to the breeding ranks for true pink color. Really a lovely jewel! $7.00.
