From IrisTest Gardens Catalog 1954 “38”  A casually ruffled bright pink flower of great brilliance. In our gardens it was perhaps one of the finest most brilliant of the “raspberry pinks”with a prominent tangerine beard. Extra fine growing qualities with tall very well branched stems. It is a striking new iris, original in coloring and poise HM 1959.”
