Awaiting original catalog description.
From Easy Breeze Gardens catalog, 1953: CHILDHOOD (Long '46) 40". From England. An exquisite blend of bronze and pink, with overlay of blue on the falls. Remarkable branching! $1.5.
CHILDHOOD (Long) - On a one year plant this was quite short. I like the coloring, though, of this lavender and gold blend. [Clifford W. Benson, "Varietal Comments," The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 110 (July 1948): 94.]
