Thank you all very much for your suggestions for pinks and yellow
bitones. I have many new names to look for. Of the pictures I found I
really liked the look of PARTY DRESS and SCHIAPARELLI. They've gone on
my wishlist for next years ordering. I was unable to locate pics for
any of the yellows except OLA KALA and PINNACLE, and while they are
pretty, it's not what I'm looking for.

You're right, that is too big a question. Let me put it another way:
I'm not real fond of alot of ruffling, and much prefer a tailored iris.
My favorites always seem to fall in the 30's to 50's, and I'm
particularly fond of Cayeux introductions. So, any suggestions along
those lines are appreciated. I'm still in search for that perfect
yellow bi-tone with the pale standards and bright falls.
In Oly WA, where I am about to dig up my entire garden and move it to a
new house across town. Wish me luck! =)
