TB 36″ M S9L

From Cayeux et LeClerc catalog for 1930: “This is an improved ‘Maquisette’. Standards shrimp-rose contrasting gracefully with the falls salmony overlaid purplish-crimson, the whole tinged yellow at the base. Strong branched stems above 3 feet.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1937: “The general effect is one of brilliant shrimp-pink, with golden glints. This French introduction is offered as a great improvement upon the fine variety Marquisette, being a deeper shade. A very lovely and unique novelty, at its best when established a year. It increases rapidly.”

From Robert Wayman’s catalog for 1940: “A most attractive and brilliant SHRIMP-PINK, with a flush of soft yellow at the throat. Shrimp-pink is a most unusual color tone in any flower and Frivolite is one of the best Iris of this color.”
