From AIS Bulletin #257 April 1985 Introducing MAGENTA MAGIC (D. R. Spence '85) Sdlg. U83-4. SOB, 10V4", M. This little one will work its magic on you! Time after time it will capture your glance with its Vibrant-ONE OF A KIND-color. Nothing is remotely the same true bright magenta! Additionally, it has exquisite round form, near horizontal flare, plenty of ruffling, baby blue beards and one branch with 3 buds. Believe it or notf it is hard to capture in words or a picture! Unknown parentage but probably a seedling of Color Me Rose. $12.50. 4-Square Iris Gardens.
