Another batch, then I need a break!

Clarendon - I think this one is quite pretty. The database calls Clarendon a pink self, but this has white on it, so the jury is out. Wiki has no pictures either.

Palladium - Schreiner
I think this one is correct, as rose, salmon copper with orange gold beard. It is a nice looking iris in person.
