Paul, I love your pink seedlings! I think I like the second one best because of the touch of rose in the haft area -- a wonderful touch! but the others are right up there too. Your seedlings are just as beautiful as the registered irises!

And if I was at home I would be adding a picture or two of -- you guessed it -- PICTURE BOOK!

Paul, your pinks are beautiful. My favorite pink in my garden is Happenstance (peach really). Poem of Ecstasy', which is peach and violet, was really pretty this season as well. Contes de Fées (really more peach that pink) is also pretty.

Is there a "true" pink, not peach nor lilac?

Strawberry Shake is absolutely pink. Magical is too. And the median Londonderry is pink. There are many dwarfs that are pink.

Jan and Leslie ~ Thank You!

Sometimes it is difficult to determine from a variety of pictures. This iris in particular, has several pictures that looks to be "peachy-pink"!

Evelyn, i find that in searching for a pink iris look for one that has either a pale pink or white beard. If the beard is peachy then the iris will have a peach influence..... she opined.
