From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing BROAD GRIN (Lankow)-SDB, 9", EM, Sdlg. 2A25-2: Appleblossom Pink X 80-5-1 : (Cotton Blossom x Wright L32). "Broad" because it gained some local notoriety as the "Blushing Broad". It has very short, wide, heavily substanced petals for an SDB from pink breeding. "Grin" because its mouth is wide open. Even with that fault, it is pretty flower. The color is pink cream (RHS 18D) blushed shrimp pink (33D) up the ribs and across the hafts. There is a chrome yellow line down the center of the falls, and the open standards reveal gilt edged pink styles. Fertile both ways. EC '85. $10.00. Kirkland Iris Garden.
From AIS Bulletin #265 April 1987 Introducing BROAD GRIN (Lankow) SDB, 9". Short and wide, this pretty pink cream is blushed shrimp pink at the hafts and ribs. This iris laughs at you in the garden and will add width and substance to pink breeding as it is fertile both ways. We love it. EC 1985. $10.00. Riverdale Iris Gardens.
