As my modest collection of iris has grown, I have added several pinks along
the way, but I am still looking for the pink that stops me in my tracks.

no orange beard, preferably no white there either. Shade could be either
light or dark (see, I'm not asking much, am I?). |
Unlike some others who do not like the modern form, I love it. I'll take
as much substance as I can get (about as firm as those fake wax lips we used

I'll take all I can get. Having said all that, color is still the key and
I'll consider candidates of the older, historic, drooping form if the color
Of course, all the cultural extras would be nice..reliable bloomer, hardy,
rot-resistant, bud count, blah, blah, blah, but if she's beautiful enough,
I'll even put up with sub-par on all that.
I know she is out there...would someone please just introduce me? ;-) (iris-photos folks, a picture
would be nice)
If she's still just my fantasy, anybody working on her?
(in southern MO where the fifth big snow of the year is still on the ground
and more predicted tomorrow afternoon - more already this winter than the
last 3 or 4 years put together :-) )
