Awaiting original From Walter Marx Gardens catalog description. 1957: FRANCES KENT (De Forest 1951) Each 3.00. A flower that has personality and one of the loveliest of the newer iris that bears the mark of distinction. Standards of chartreuse cream hue with just a flush of pink rise over the somewhat lighter colored falls that flare in almost horizontal fashion, cradling a pinkish orange beard. Definitely outstanding. 3 feet. HM 1952.
