'Courtier' (David Hall, R. 1945) TB. Midseason bloom. Color Class-R4M. From two flamingo pink seedlings.
|From Hallcroft Iris catalog, 1949: COURTIER. H. C. 1944. Deepest in color of the flamingo pinks. It is not as large nor has it as good form as Cherie, but the color is outstanding. The 30-inch stems are strong and the branching is good. Prominent deep tangerine beard. All our flamingo pinks are winter hardy and set seed freely. $10.00|
|Courtier (Hall '44)—Deeper in color than Cherie or any other pink that I have seen. It has carrying quality in the garden. The standards are wide and nicely domed. The falls seemed to cup a little which might not be true of an older clump or in bright sunny weather. The form and substance are not as good as that of Cherie but the color is exquisite. [Winegar, Nina N. (1949). Iris Time in the Rockies, American Iris Society Bulletin 116(January 1950), 69.]|
