From AIS Bulletin #217 April 1975 Introducing WINGS OF DREAMS (Woodside). TB, 34-39". Buffy X sdlg. Ruffied, fluted, laced. Wide and round and widely flared falls; slightly open stds. Beautiful light pink. Wonderful stems with early thru late bloom. Another Woodside winner!! $25.00. Sierra Vista Iris Garden.
I think there can be too much lace on an iris, and WINGS OF DREAMS overdoes it. It is a pleasing shade of pink, blooms very early, and grows vigorously. It also sets seed pods like crazy. [Margaret Dean, (NM), “How They Grow, New Mexico Style”, The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 246 (July 1982): 13.]
