I agree with Donald.  My favorite pink is Pink Champagne because it is a very vigorous iris.  I have never been able to set a pod on it, but its abundant pollen sets pods on just about everything.  All of its seedlings are extremely vigorous, and it usually gives better form than its own.  I am using it to increase the vigor of some weak pod parents.

Not here. I haven't been able to make any correlation at all between
the apparent vigor of one or both of the parents in what turns up in
the seedlings. Pods between two strong growers have produced only
one or two or none strong growers and pods between two poor growers
have produced a uniform bunch of strong growers. It's all over the
board as far as I can tell. I'm thinking TB seedlings here, but it
applies to the AB crosses as well.
