From Fay Gardens catalog, 1947: NEW HORIZON No. 44-36.(1946)(Morocco Rose X Hall 40-24) X Overture. $30. This is definitely a new color in Iris. Not a pink blend, but a true peach pink self of beautiful form with a tangerine beard and pink buds. The standards, which are slightly deeper peach pink than the falls, are full, ruffled and tightly held. The haft is wide and free from markings. The falls are 2-7/8 inches wide, tailored and flaring. The flowers are above average in size, of exceptional substance, and carried on a strong well-branched stalk. 40 inches tall. Late. The plant is winter hardy at Chicago; it is vigorous, and an average increaser. H. C. 1945.
