This request was received for the Historic Iris society's 'Iris Locator'
column however, the iris desired is a bit new for that venue. In lieu of
HIPS, thought I would try to get iris and grower together via cyberspace.
The iris is 'Pink Pacaderm' [sic] (D. Spence 1988). Sdlg S83-107-3. TB, 30"
(76cm) M. Baby ribbon pink, watermelon pink beard, 1/2" upcurved pink horns
occasionally ending in 1/4" pink spoons. Miss Jupiter X Almond Parfait.
21st Century Gardens 1988.
The individual who is looking for this iris is the hybridizer, David
Spence, 3970 North Highway 89, Prescott, AZ 86301. No phone # available. He
has offered a reward of $250.00 to the person furnishing him a rhizome;
payable after receiving, blooming the iris, and verifiying correct ID.
We all hate to accept cash for a plant, but hey, it buys a lot of new
introductions! 8-) And if you can't hang on to your own intros...some
pain should be experienced for redemption. ;>
