Mike, I don't know where you live, but I have to put in a plug for my favorite historic iris.  It is Ruth's Love.  I don't have my books at hand right now to tell you the date of introduction, but it was sometime in the sixties.  Standards are light yellow, falls white with wide yellow rim.  It grows like a weed and is incredibly hardy.  Everywhere I have dropped rhizomes, they manage to grow and bloom, even in a desert area with no water.  Every spring it makes bright sunny patches under some of my orchard trees.  The stalks are tall and well branched, and the flowers are pretty too.  I don't dare plant it in my garden though.  It will take over.

  I'm putting together my wishlist and need some suggestions for the 
  following styles of iris.  I prefer historics if possible.

  I am looking for a good yellow bitone.  Perhaps with sunny yellow falls 
  topped by pale lemony standards.  I currently have two yellows, one 
  self and one plicata, and would like to add something different.  I'm 
  not fond of deep gold tones.

  Also looking for a really good pastel pink.  It seems all the pinks I 
  see are closer to purple or peach than what I want.  Just straight 
  'baby girl pink' would be great.  Are there historics in this color?  
  If not any names of good moderns that aren't too ruffled?

  Thanks for your suggestions!

  Mike U.
  Iris season is over in my garden.  One stalk with a couple of blooms 
  left is it.
