PINNACLE is a splendid iris, generally considered to be the first yellow
amoena TB - a stunning breakthrough when it was introduced (1949). It has
always been a tremendously vigorous grower and bloomer for me, which is
especially welcome in a color class that seems to have more than its share
of wimps. Perhaps even closer to the color combo Mike requested is SUMMIT
(1948), which has pale yellow standards and medium yellow falls. It bloomed
for the first time for me this year, but it appears to have many of the
good qualities of its stablemate. Both PINNACLE and SUMMIT were bred by the
renowned New Zealand hybridizer, Jean Stevens.

Tell Muhlestain bred some very fine early pink TBs. Two that are in the
true pink range without any orangey influence are PINK FORMAL (1949) and
