I saw that Evelyn is looking for a true pink. So let's see what you grow and how it looks.

Jan ~ Happenstance was one sent to me by Rob. Unfortunately it did not survive. It just shriveled up and went by the wayside. I still have it in a one gallon pot in case it recovers, but it isn't looking likely.

Rob ~ You have a nice collection of pinks.

In the Moment is pretty nice. The data base says I have 124 pinks, but many of them are bi-tones, or are only partially pink. I think Evelyn is looking for a self in clear pink.

Here are a few of my suggestions for Evelyn :)
I've endeavored to stick with cultivars that I've grown with more pure tones/tints of pink because let's face it ..... there are about as many "pink shades" as there are eyes to behold and identify them.


Embrace Me -- Van Liere '08

I can't help much in the show your pinks as I have very very few. The only two true pinks I had bloom this year were Pinkity and Strawberry Shake.

Some of these I have had for many years; and they are getting to be somewhat 'antique' or 'historic'. But I am determined to keep some as long as I can. So many historic irises are almost impossible to find at the present time. So I am learning to live with these and preserve them as long as possible.

Heartbreaker, David Hall, 1964, I keep it because it's a nostalgia thing,
and its nice in its own historic way. Blooms & survives faithfully!

Presence, Joe Gatty, 1986-87, A tough & beautiful iris; pink coloring
has some mauve shading in the standards. Very desireable iris! I
used this as a pod parent years ago and got some beautiful seedlings.

Londonderry, IB, Keppel, 1996, This is a keeper; it puts on a
nice show in early May. Not quite as old as the others, but worth
preserving!
