BRIGHT SONG. "Came to me very poorly recommended but as it grows here it was a lovely orchid pink flower with great color value." [Mrs. M. D. Naylor (Utah), “Varietal Comment, Comments from Region 12” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 123, (October 1951): 74.]
From Iris Test Garden Catalog, 1955: BRIGHT SONG. (Schroeder, 1949). Early bloom. 38 inches. A casually ruffled bright pink flower of great brilliance. In our gardens it was perhaps one of the finest, most brilliant of the "raspberry pinks" with a prominent tangerine beard. Extra fine growing qualities with tall, very well-branched stems.
