Introducing BLOOMIN' LOVE. (Joseph's Mantle x Novelty sib) x Heatherlands. This heavily ruffled giant plicata with a cream ground and delicately stippled brilliant rose pink border is remarkably floriferous for it has many buds on its 40-inch, wide branched stems. One of the most outstanding plicatas we have ever seen. each $25.00. Wells Gardens. American Iris Society Bulletin 141 (April 1956).
A rose-on-cream plicata that I really like. It hasn't won any awards, but its performance for us is much better than some that won awards when it was new. It has a different color, and good size, form, substance and branching. Hildenbrandt, Lester (1965). Irises for a Beginner, American Iris Society Bulletin, 177 (April 1965), 27.
