From AIS Bulletin #220 January 1976 Introducing STARFROST PINK (1976). TB, M, 38", #58-1B. $25.00. This beautifully ruffled and laced China rose (rich pink) iris has the height, branching, texture and form that might be expected from the crossing of LORNA LEE X PINK TAFFETA. Height and sturdiness from the first (a Firenze gold medal winner) carry through, making a 38" tall, well-branched plant, blessed by rich pink beautifully formed blossoms from its union with PINK TAFFETA (the '75 Dykes Medal winner). It has to be outstanding since it is carrying the superb qualities of both lines. Vigorous growth. Bright tangerine beard. Gibson's Iris Garden.
