EM 36″
From Schreiner’s Iris Lovers Catalog 1951:”An exquisite fresh pure pink; one of the famous flamingo pink line. Outstanding qualities are the pinkness, smoothness, purity of tone and melting softness of color. The unusual freshness of tone in PINK CAMEO is due to the almost entire absence of other coloring in its makeup, producing tones of ethereal freshness.The pointed buds much deeper in color, are a picture in themselves, opening to give an entirely new conception of what a pink iris can be. The shading is a beautiful translucent cameo-pink with a striking tangerine-orange beard,.the “trade mark” so typical of the new pink iris. Excellent branching, 36″ stems, good substance, fine sized flowers lightly flaring and early blooming.It is as fine an iris as has been developed in this exciting new color class. One of the loveliest iris we have offered.”
