| From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: TALLY HO. Seedling 44-29. Fantasy x 42-46. 42-46 is Golden Eagle x 39-62.The general color of this flower is something new and pleasing. The upper part of the falls are close to the deep coloring seen in bright fuschia colored orchids. The domed standards and lower part of the falls are lighter. It is a large well formed flower of heavy substance. The branching on the stout 32-inch stems is a little closely spaced for the large flowers. Tally Ho is of our flamingo pink strain and is one of the most valuable parents for getting increase in size and variety of color. When crossed with our clear flamingo pinks it throws clear pinks, orchid pinks, golden apricots and some burgundy shades. It is one of the parents of Heritage, Pink Sensation and others scheduled for introduction. $15.00
