From Tempo Two catalog, 2015: LOST IN DREAMS (Blyth 2015 Aust) E 37”. We have had a dream for a long time to find a pink amoena in our seedling rows that meets all the criteria of a quality Tall Bearded Iris. So far we have had several approaches, but never the real thing. Here is another selection that if it had pinker falls, would fill the bill. The standards are white with just a slight salmon flush at the midribs, though hardly noticeable; falls are rich smooth pastel salmon with no other colour. Beards are coral salmon. Blooms are wide, flared and ruffled and branching is fine. Good grower and it is also very fertile, giving pinker seedlings.
