From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972 Introducing CHERISHED GIFT (Apricot Royal X Bright Butterfly) X Bright Butterfly). 32". ML. Orange self; wide red beard. The upright standards open slightly; their frills and firm substance add to their attractiveness; the heavy increase and flowering ability also add to its high quality. I am introducing this iris by request. Truly desired in all gardens of those who grew it. You will love it too! HC 1971. $25.00, Schmelzer's Gardens.
