Re: TB Gladys my Love

Cheryl:  Speaking as one who is known among my fellow club members as a
non-lover of pinks, I guess my endorsement of GLADYS MY LOVE should mean
something :-), shouldn't it?!   I really do think it is special, much better
than the picture.  Allan Ensminger worked for years to get an iris he thought
would be good enough to be worthy of being named for his dear wife, and this
is it.  Having met him more than once (he is from our region) and knowing his
well-earned reputation for perfection (he always has destroyed hundreds of
seedlings that lesser mortals like me would gladly have kept) I know the
decision to release and name this one meant a lot.    It's definitely a "get
this one" iris.
